BSNL to network poll officials

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The BSNL will erect as many as 150 new microwave towers across the State to provide land and mobile phone connectivity to most villages for elections.

BSNL top officials indicated this to Chief Electoral Officer I. V. Subba Rao during discussions here on Thursday . Mr. Subba Rao said the network would be such that an election official in a village would be able to immediately contact the higher authorities at divisional, district and State levels when faced with a problem or trouble.

Briefing reporters later, Mr. Rao said about 3 lakh officials and 87,000 policemen would be deployed for the big exercise. He set March 15 as the deadline for inspection of EVMs by ECIL engineers.
