State Election Commission has addressed a press conference on Monday, where the Chief Electoral Officer Mukesh Sahu has officially announced the schedule and guidelines for the coming Lok Sabha polls in the state.
The state election commission has made it compulsory for candidates contesting polls to advertise their criminal records in Tv and newspapers at least three times during campaigns. Political parties too will have to give publicity to the criminal records of candidates fielded by them.
The new cVIGIL app launched by Election Commission of India is expected to fill in all these gaps and create a fast-track complaint reception and redressal system.
