The general elections for 25 seats in the state are due in two phases on April 29 and May 6 and the mercury has already crossed 40 degrees Celsius in most parts of the state.
In a letter to all the DEOs, Mr Kumar said as heat wave conditions are likely to prevail on the voting day so availability of shade, water and other facilities should be ensured at polling stations in their respective districts ahead of polling.
