Panchayat polls a bigger challenge than municipal polls: Muneer Khan

Srinagar: Additional Director General of Police (Law & Order and Security) Muneer Ahmad Khan on Saturday said that the conduct of Panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir is more challenging than the recently held municipal elections.

Talking to reporters after participating in a wreath laying ceremony of CISF personnel killed in a militant attack, Khan said: “Panchayat elections are more challenging than the recently held municipal polls for the simple fact that much larger population has to participate in Panchayat elections.”

Talking about the security for panchayat elections Khan said, “Though challenges are huge than the urban local body elections but major successes against militants have frustrated the militants. We are prepared to ensure incident free polls and a peaceful atmosphere during the panchayat elections.” (With inputs from KNS)
