Gurugram may get extra security cover in these elections
Gurugram: Placed under the sensitive category along with Mahendargarh and Faridabad, Gurugram may get more security these elections. Based on the surveillance the Haryana government has placed the Lok Sabha constituencies under the normal, sensitive and super sensitive category.
Kurukshetra, Bhiwani and Sonepat have been placed under the normal categories. On the other hand, Hissar, Sirsa and Rohtak have been placed under the super sensitive areas where more violence is expected during elections. It is important to note that on account of jat agitations and other forms of agitations that turned violent the Haryana public administration has been on constant vigil to restore law and order situation.
In the past Gurugram has been on the edge with various events like Ram Rahim arrest, jat agitation and Padmavat. While the district administration on various occasion was able to prevent any acts of violence during the release of Padmavat there was an act of violence that was reported from in and around the city. In the past elections district police not having adequate force, special commandos of Haryana police have also been deployed for the security of polling stations. The past trends have shown that there has not been violence that has been reported from the polling stations of Gururgam. In the last Lok Sabha polls, Gurugram recorded 70 per cent polling.
