During the meeting, Assistant Election Officer briefed the gathering about the Election Commission's recently declared National Electoral Roll Purification (NERP) programme. He said that during this exercise the main focus would be the registration of electors of 18 & 19 years of age since their percentage is very low in the district.

He further asked the gathering to point out any issues if noticed or give feedback during the exercise. The representatives also gave their suggestions and grievances in regard to the election process.
