1,625 polling booths in Rajasthan to be monitored through webcasting
Jaipur: 1,625 polling stations in 32 out of 33 districts of Rajasthan will be monitored through webcasting by the state election department.
The webcasting, arranged for bringing transparency, can be viewed by the public as the link will be available on Rajasthan Election Commission`s website, additional chief election officer Rekha Gupta said.
Except for Karauli, she said 1,625 sensitive polling stations set up in all other districts will be covered through webcasting during polling in the state on April 17 and 24.
This is being done to ensure that activities inside the polling stations can be monitored by the election department, Gupta said.
Gupta today discussed election preparedness with district election officers through video conferencing and informed them that the webcasting will now be in public domain so that people can also watch the activities.
Joint Chief Election Officer (IT), Pramod Agrawal, said webcasting was conducted at 1300 polling stations during Assembly elections last year and had delivered good results.
A total of 47,948 polling stations will be set up in 25 parliamentary constituencies in Rajasthan.
