Dharawad: Deputy Commissioner Gurudatta Hegde, who is also the District Election Officer said that the officers and staff appointed for election duty should work impartially, non-religiously and legally to ensure that elections are conducted in a fair and lawful manner.

He was speaking at Alur Venkatarao Samskruti Auditorium in the City on Tuesday April 4 at the District Administration appointed Returning Officers, Assistant Returning Officers and Sector Officers, for the Karnataka General Elections – 23.

He was speaking after inaugurating a one-day training workshop organised for ST, VST, VVT and assistant expenditure observers and members of accounts teams.

Dedicated personnel are required to conduct the elections in a free and transparent manner. Election duty is a sacred task. Everyone assigned to election duty should leave their personal identities behind and be impartial.

All Department Officials should work as a team. He said all the teams on duty, led by election officers, should be in touch with each other and work in coordination.

He said that strict vigil should be taken to ensure that no electoral malpractices take place and the information provided in the training and the handbooks of the Election Commission should be read and followed.
