Vijayawada: Chief Electoral Officer Mukesh Kumar Meena laid stress on curbing illegal storage, sale and distribution of liquor during the poll season, by using technology like webcasting and GPS tracking.

The CEO issued directions to the state beverages corporation managing director here on Thursday to enhance vigil on illegal storage, sale and distribution of liquor, by setting up CC cameras at distilleries and breweries, at entry/exit points of liquor godowns and to keep GPS tracking on vehicles that transport liquor from the manufacturing units to the liquor outlets and bars etc.
