Authorities from Latur in Maharashtra and Bidar in neighbouring Karnataka have held a joint meeting to ensure smooth conduct of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the two districts, officials said.

Voting for the Latur and Bidar Lok Sabha seats will be held on May 7.

Officials of both the districts held a review meeting on Wednesday.
