“They gave us assurances that they will talk to their members to comply with all the regulations, including traffic rules and regulations.

“We made it categorically clear to them that there is need for them to educate their members that election is not a do-or-die thing.

“They should not compromise their lives by overloading themselves in vehicles. We told them that their members should live up to expectation.

“They should educate their members not to obstruct traffic, not to close all the roads and make it difficult for other road users; they should tell their members not to violate traffic rules and regulations,” he said.
