A.P.-Odisha officials decide to ensure free and fair elections in Kotia villages



District Collector of Parvathipuram-Manyam Nishant Kumar and officials of Rayagada and Koraput districts in neighbouring Odisha on Thursday decided to give top priority for free and fair election in the border areas, including in the disputed Kotia villages.

Mr. Nishant Kumar interacted virtually with his counterparts in the two districts and sought their cooperation in the proper conduct of elections in the Kotia villages, wherein Andhra Pradesh always made the necessary arrangements.

Mr. Nishant Kumar said four polling stations would be set up for people living in the 22 Kotia villages.

He said that the police personnel and other election officials of both the States should not allow distribution of liquor, money and gifts to the voters.

Koraput Collector V. Keerthi Vasan and Parvathipuram SP Vikrant Patil were among others present.
