Furthermore, the state police, paramilitary forces and Tripura State Rifles are on vigil across the state in a bid to ensure smooth counting of votes.
"Adequate security arrangements have been made in the 20 places where counting is taking place. We have deputed senior officers of the police for overseeing arrangements. Measures have been taken for the safety and security of the candidates. The BSF has been alerted, and they will continue their vigil along the border. We would like to appeal to all to maintain peace and calm," Tripura Chief Electoral Officer, Sriram Taranikanti, told ANI.
