Mizoram Police: DGP Anil Shukla Vows for Trouble-Free Vote Counting

Mizoram Elections

Ahead of the much-awaited December 3 assembly election results, Director General of Police (DGP) Anil Shukla promises the people of “full-proof arrangements” for a seamless counting procedure. The state, which is pulsating with post-election euphoria, is bracing for a political rollercoaster.

DGP Shukla, in a statement today, emphasized the meticulous preparations in place, highlighting the tight security measures and collaborative efforts with Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) to ensure an incident-free counting day. The stakes are high, with the battle for all 40 seats in the Legislative Assembly adding to the electoral suspense.

In a surprising twist, the DGP also shed light on another battle Mizoram is combating—the illegal drug trade. With a porous border with Myanmar acting as a gateway for narcotics, Mizoram confronts the rising challenge of drug trafficking. DGP Shukla detailed recent successful operations, including the seizure of Yaba tablets worth crores, underscoring the ongoing efforts to curb this menace.
