PANAJI: Even as the Election Commission (EC) is expecting a five per cent jump in voting percentage for the 2017 Goa assembly polls the chief electoral office (CEO) has declared six constituencies as ‘sensitive’ and warned government employees not to indulge in political activities.

Chief electoral officer Kunal told reporters that while the state had four sensitive constituencies — St Cruz, Calangute, Cuncolim and Velim — this time they were treating Porvorim and certain parts of Mormugao as sensitive.

“Even in St Andre some CRPF personelle have been deployed after due analysis,” he said and added that they were continuously updating the sensitive areas list.

On issuing a warning to government employees, he said, “we have got complaints and have instructed the flying squad to keep an eye on the activities of government employees.
