Patna: Government officials were exhorted to exercise their powers without caring for personalities or posts by former adviser to the Election Commission K J Rao on Thursday.

''Do not think who is in power and who is not in power ... You can bring changes by just following the rules strictly,'' Rao said here addressing a meeting convened by Bihar State Election Authority for primary agriculture cooperative societies (PACS) election.

He praised the Bihar government for bringing a legislation for the first time in the country for conducting the PACS election.

The meeting of observers, district magistrates and other officials was also addressed by BSEA adviser Raghuvansh Kumar Sinha.

Sinha said over 86 lakh voters would exercise their franchise for PACS election and 65,300 polling officers and staffs and 94,000 security personnel would be deployed at 15,000 polling stations for the purpose.
