GUWAHATI: At least 360 model code of conduct (MCC) grievances have been registered so far through cVigil app. Besides, some 162 cases of MCC violation have been reported through complaints received from 50 election districts.
Nitin Khade, chief election officer (CEO), Assam in a statement said, “Arrangements have been done for detail examination of these complaints as well as early disposal of these cases.”
In order to empower and encourage the citizens to report on any MCC violation, the election commission of India (ECI) has introduced a user-friendly application called cVigil.
The uniqueness of the app is that it only allows live photo/video with auto-location capture to ensure digital evidence for flying squads to act upon in a time-bound manner. The app can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
The election department has also conducted meetings with all the concerned political parties, candidates, agents etc. to sensitize them about the MCC guidelines after the declaration of MCC in the state.
Teams have been constituted at the state level and across all districts also to monitor – digital, social and traditional media platforms.
