Polling In Chhattisgarh As Per Schedule: Officials After Maoist Attack

Bheema Mandavi

As there was fear in the region, the EC should take over all control of the security arrangements, it said. Four personnel of Chhattisgarh State Police have also been killed.

In his report to the poll panel, Mr Sahu said he has "taken an immediate video conference of collectors and SPs (superintendents of police) of the affected districts covering Phase 1 and phase 2 in Chhattisgarh". Devti, wife of Mahendra Karma who was killed in a Maoist attack in Jhiram Valley in 2013, earlier defeated Mandavi by almost 6,000 votes.

The Bastar Lok Sabha seat, in which Dantewada is located, votes on Thursday in the parliamentary elections.

"Shri Bhima Mandavi was a dedicated Karyakarta of the BJP".

Ahead of the assembly elections in November past year, a CISF personnel and three civilians were killed in Dantewada when an IED planted by Naxals tore through a bus.

Measles case confirmed in Maryland in someone who was in Pikesville
For more information about measles, visit https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/2170/ and http://www.cdc.gov/measles/index.html . Health officials say the best way to stop the disease's spread is a vaccination rate in the community of 92 to 95 per cent.

The incident while raising a big question on the lack of timely intelligence inputs for the forces and lack of adequate security ensured for the MLA has also sent apprehension among the polling staff who was air-lifted to the hypersensitive polling station for the conduct of the first phase of election in Bastar on April 11.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who hails from the same party as the slain state legislator, condemned the strike. The MLA and four security personnel were killed in the attack, police officials said.

BJP MLA Bheema Mandavi and four others lost their lives on Tuesday in a dastardly attack carried out by Naxals in Dantewada.

The brutal killing of India's ruling party's MLA created outrage in Chhattisgarh as Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel cancelled his poll campaign and chaired a high-level meeting in Raipur to assess the law and order situation. "I'll go to Dantewada and meet families of deceased", he said.

Chhattisgarh will go for polls in three phases - April 11, 18 and 23.
