District Collector Orders Strict Checking at State Borders to Prevent Illegal Transportation of Money and Liquor

Nalgonda: District Collector and District Election Officer RV Karnan on Friday ordered strict checking at all state border integrated check posts in the district to prevent illegal transportation of money and liquor into the district. He said that the model code of conduct for the Telangana state legislative assembly elections-2023 has come into force and that officials of police, revenue and excise will be posted at the check posts to curb all illegal activities.

Karnan inspected the state border integrated check posts at Wadapally in Damaracherla mandal and Nagarjuna Sagar tailpond in Adavidevulapally. He said that the people would generally travel between AP and Telangana on Krishna water in indigenous boats at Adavidulapally and that special focus will be given to checking these boats.

He also said that flying squads have already started checking vehicles at strategic points in the district and that people should carry proof for transactions of money if they are carrying more than Rs 50,000. Otherwise, the money will be considered as unaccounted money and seized by the officials.

A grievance committee headed by Zilla Parishad Chief Executive Officer has been set up for release of seized money not related to elections. After examining the proofs, the committee will return the money to its owners within 24 hours. The details of the seized money of more than Rs 10 lakhs will be sent to the IT department after releasing it to its owners by the committee.

Karnan said that static surveillance teams will start work from November 3 and that Elections Observers (general, expenditure) will be deputed to the district by the Election Commission of India by that date.
