He directed to take strict action by keeping a special eye on illegal cash, illicit liquor, drugs and other items. He said that there is a need to strictly curb the illegitimate use of smuggled goods and illegal items to lure voters during the election process through close coordination between various enforcement agencies.

He directed to keep a strict vigil on those moving vehicles with unauthorized signs, banners and flags of political parties and take action as per rules.

For this, the Election Forfeiture Management System has been developed by the Commission, which should be used meaningfully. He directed for real time reporting and record keeping by mutual coordination among the enforcement agencies. He also directed to strictly monitor the movement of free gift items.
