NORTH LAKHIMPUR, Nov 12 - The ongoing effect of demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes by the Centre is being felt in the by-election preparations of 14 Lakhimpur HPC in which the assigned polling personnel have been asked to produce their bank details for their remuneration. The district returning officer of Lakhimpur Debeswar Malakar made this appeal in a press release on Thursday in the wake of the current demonetisation policy of the Indian Government.

All the assigned polling personnel � the presiding and polling officers have been asked to submit their bank details including the account number, name of the branch, IFS Code along before the concerned officials. They are requested to furnish their bank details on November 13, the day of the concluding phase of poll training. The polling personnel were also asked to submit the photocopy of the first page of their bank passbook for correct and faultless information.

Meanwhile, Election Commission Observer Rajendra R Sobhan took stock of the poll preparedness in North Lakhimpur. He verified the progress of work of strong room and election counting cells with the district returning officer Debeswar Malakar.

The District Magistrate of Lakhimpur has also appealed to the public to deposit their firearms if any, at the nearest police stations as a measure to ensure peaceful voting in the ensuing bypoll.

Campaigning for the by-election to 14 Lakhimpur HPC has reached its peak as bigwigs of various contesting political parties thronged the district in support of their candidates. The BJP hold a press meet on Wednesday in which the party leaders called for vote for their candidate Pradan Baruah on the basis of good performance carried out by earlier MP Sarbananda Sonowal, who is now the State Chief Minister. The party also asked the voters to support their candidate for a corruption-free system and development.

On the other hand, the Congress party has also started its campaign by holding series of meetings across the district. The APCC president Ripun Bora, Leader of the Opposition at the State Assembly Debabrata Saikia, ex-minister Rockybul Hussain, ex-MLA Bhupen Borah and Bobita Sarma are campaigning for their candidate Dr Hema Hari Prasanna Pegu.

Meanwhile, the Lakhimpur district administration has conducted a series of streetplays in a bid to create awareness among the voters for the ensuing by-election. The streetplays were performed in various places like Borchola, Phoolbari, Gopalpur, Baliting, Chilanibari, Dejo etc., in active participation of NGO Suraksha. Earlier, training programmes for Booth Level Officers (BLO) were held in North Lakhimpur. 450 BLOs from 110 Nowboicha and 111 Lakhimpur LAC areas of 14 Lakhimpur HPC were given training on Tuesday at the auditorium of District Library here.
