EC special observers meet CRPF brass on holding J&K Assembly polls

NEW DELHI: The three special observers appointed by the Election Commission (EC) to help it decide on holding assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday met top officials of the CRPF and State police here.

Sources aware of the meeting said since the CRPF is the principal security agency in the State, the observers wanted a feedback on how early the assembly polls can be held in the State.

The CRPF, the sources said, is of the view that elections should first be held in the “most difficult” parts of the State so that the force gets adequate time to dominate the area. (AGENCIES)
