In the wake of the attack on senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Union minister Ravi Shanker Prasad at an election rally in Bihar, Chief Election Commissioner B B Tandon Thursday spoke to state Chief Secretary G S Kang and expressed concern over security arrangements.
"It was unfortunate and I expressed my concern to the chief secretary and asked the district authorities to be more alert," Tandon told PTI.
"The chief secretary said he was inquiring into the incident thoroughly," Tandon said.
The Election Commission has provided adequate security in naxal-infested areas of Bihar, the CEC said.
