Delhi Elections 2020: Out Of 12,000 complaints, EC solved 11,000 in 100 mins or less

In almost all districts of Delhi except North West and South West, the percentage of cases solved within 100 minutes is over 90%.

New Delhi| During the course of campaigning for the Assembly elections, the Delhi CEO office received over 12,000 complaints of Model Code of Conduct (MCC) violation on the cVigil app, of which 11,000 were resolved within the stipulated 100 minutes.

Data accessed by The Indian Express shows that in almost all districts of Delhi, barring North West and South West, the percentage of cases solved within 100 minutes is over 90%. In Central district, the figure is 99% while South West recorded 87%, the lowest.

The cVigil app was launched in 2018 by the Election Commission (EC) during assembly elections, as a “fast-track complaint reception and redressal system”.

“The intent was to make citizens part of the election process. After downloading the app, users can click a photo or video of anything that they think is an MCC violation — from banners or hoardings to communal speeches. There are 16 categories from which they can select,” said OSD (IT) Vikas Ahlawat.

Ahlawat said maximum complaints they received were regarding hoardings or posters put up without permission.

Incidentally, the Central district also saw the maximum number of complaints. Of the 3,483 cases it acted upon, 3,464 were resolved within 100 minutes. A majority of these — 2,146 — came from Burari.

Delhi is voting for the assembly elections today. There are 70 assembly constituencies in Delhi. As many as 1.47 crore voters will exercise their franchise. While Aam Adami Party, Congress and BJP remain the three major parties, together all the political parties have fielded 672 candidates. The election campaign for this assembly election remained high-pitched and bitter as Shaheen Bagh and Anti-CAA Protests dominated the narrative.

In 2015, AAP which was the new party had won whopping 67 seats. 3 were won by BJP and congress faced a rout. Subsequently, in the MCD polls, BJP had a resounding victory. Even in 2019 Assembly elections, BJP bagged all the seven seats. Will the AAP repeat 2015 performance or BJP continues its winning streak in Delhi that remains to be see
