District convener of Election Watch, N Srinivas, in a letter to the Chief Electoral Officer, requested him to direct election staff to search police vehicles, ambulances and government-owned vehicles at the check-posts set up in accordance with the Model Code of Conduct. He lauded the Election Commission’s effort to curb unethical and illegal electoral practices in the State.
