He responded to the questions by the election officers and staff, clarified  doubts and asked them to call the district control room at 1077 in case of any complaints and clarifications on the polling day. He said that he would be available at the control room throughout the day and would respond to the problems immediately. 

“With police and paramilitary forces deployed for security, no law and order problem would be there. In case of any incidents of violation of model code of conduct, the election staff should immediately call 1077 and inform.
