AGARTALA, April 1 - Like the Tripura Assembly elections in 2018, the entire polling process of Parliamentary election in the State would be brought under web casting to ensure free, fair and peaceful elections.
And, polling process would be strictly monitored from offices of CEO, ROs and AROs through web casting. If there is any technical snag in EVMs or VVPATs and any unforeseen developments during the voting, prompt steps would be taken to avoid unnecessary delays.
In the 2018 Assembly elections, web casting was successfully done in the State and it ensured a free, fair and peaceful elections well accepted by the political parties, said State CEO Sriram Tarinikanta.
Besides web casting, there would be provision for videography in some polling stations to keep a close watch on the polling process, he said while speaking to the media here on Monday. Each Assembly constituency will have at least one all-women polling booth.
The State will have 39,077 polling booths for the two Parliamentary constituencies � West Tripura and East Tripura. The total voters in the State stands at 26,05,325. Of the total voters, West Tripura Lok Sabha constituency has 13,47,381 voters while East Tripura seat has 12, 57,944. The State has also recorded 14 transgender voters.
The number of new voters stands at 39,077 aged 18/19 years while the State has 9,393 service voters who will cast their votes through postal ballots.
Tripura will vote in two phases � April 11 for West Tripura Lok Sabha seat and April 18 for East Tripura constituency.
In both constituencies, multi-cornered fights are inevitable as all major political parties have decided to fight alone. The biggest surprise was IPFT�s decision to go it alone even though it is sharing power in the BJP-led coalition government in the State.
