Accompanied by IG (Operations) Amitabh Thakur, DIG Anirudh K Singh, Nuapada SP Pratyush Diwakar and Director-Intelligence Lalit Das, Bansal held a meeting with district officials at the SP office to discuss security arrangements for the upcoming polls. 

Speaking to mediapersons, Bansal praised the SOG team for their successful combing operations against left-wing extremism. “Our forces have done a commendable job in giving a fitting reply to the red rebels in the border areas during exchange of fires on many occasions. Security measures have now been beefed up keeping in view the forthcoming Panchayat polls,” said Bansal, adding that all necessary steps will be taken to keep the law and order situation in check. 

Later, Bansal also visited Bhawanipatna and reviewed election preparedness besides the crime situation in Kalahandi district. “Since there is Maoist presence in some pockets, we have chalked out a strategy to combat the menace and ensure smooth conduct of the ensuing elections,” added Bansal.
