Multi-departmental committee on election intelligence meets in New Delhi

The meeting aimed to map almost every Lok Sabha constituency to check transportation of smuggled goods, drugs and liquor, besides cash and fake currency.

Top most on its agenda was “curbing covert expenditure” by candidates and political parties in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The meeting also sensitised law enforcement agencies on the need for sharing intelligence, especially on economic offences.

The EC has also emphasised the need for each enforcement agency to institute district, state and national-level coordination plans and roadmap for this.

As per the agenda, the enforcement agencies requested to work in close coordination to check and freeze flow of goods and illegal money by strong deterrence and watch at seaports, inter-state borders and along the international borders.
