    Nagaland is among the six ‘Election Expenditure Sensitive’ states, as per the data of the previous elections.

    Nagaland along with Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Punjab and Arunachal Pradesh has been categorized as Election Expenditure-Sensitive state”, Deputy Election Commissioner Sudhir Tripathi told reporters here last evening.

    Considering the categorisation, the Commission will deploy Expenditure Monitoring Team from the day of filing of nominations till the polling is over, he said.

    Flying squads, video surveillance team as well as parallel election expenditure accounts would be put in place throughout the state so that the elections are held without the use of money or muscle power, he said.

    Expressing satisfaction over the preparedness of Nagaland for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls, he said all political parties had requested Election Commission to ensure that the voters received their EPIC.

    Nagaland is the last state to have started distribution of EPIC, but Nagaland and Assam will be the first states in the country to use plastic EPIC, he said.

    That problem is everywhere. In fact I have seen some political parties offering money for votes in the past. But if you ask me for proof I can't provide it. ;)
