Deputy commissioner (DC) SS Phulia said special check posts had been put up to check the distribution of liquor and cash, and strict vigil in this regard would be maintained.

The Lok Sabha election campaigning ended at 6pm on Tuesday, and liquor vends across the district closed down till April 10, 6pm.

Panchkula is a part of the Ambala Lok Sabha constituency which comprises districts of Ambala, Panchkula and Yamunanagar, and is going to vote on April 10.

No person can convene, hold or attend, join or address any public meeting or procession in connection with the elections during the 48 hours, ending with the hour fixed for the conclusion of the poll.

Meanwhile, a family living in Sector 6 here complained that despite registering their names twice, their names were not on the voters’ list. Nidhi Bharadwaj told HT that her family had filled the forms in October last year for enrolling as voters, but officials misplaced their forms. “Then again, we filled the forms in February, and this time too, they lost our forms. I am a campus ambassador for motivating students to vote and my own name is not on the voters’ list due to the officials’ fault,” she said.
