Outside political workers to leave district 48 hours in advance

Thursday, 23 May 2024 | PNS | Jamshedpur

With polling day inching closer, strict guidelines have been issued by District Election Officer  Ananya Mittal to ensure a peaceful and orderly voting process. During a meeting with representatives of political parties and candidates held at the Collectorate Auditorium,  Mittal emphasized several key measures.

One of the primary directives is that all political persons and workers from outside the district must vacate the 09-Jamshedpur constituency 48 hours before the end of polling. Specifically, they are required to leave the area after 5:00 PM on May 23, 2024. This measure aims to prevent any undue influence or disruptions during the final stages of the election. Violators found canvassing or present in the constituency beyond this period will face legal action under relevant sections.

Additionally, a ban on public gatherings and election campaigning will be enforced 48 hours prior to the end of voting. However, any election campaigns conducted through TV, cable channels, radio, and print media on May 24 and 25 must receive pre-certification from the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee (MCMC).

 Mittal urged all political parties, candidates, and their election agents to fully cooperate with election officials and employees to ensure the elections proceed smoothly. He reiterated that the use of personal vehicles by voters is permitted only up to a 100-meter radius of the polling station. No vehicles are to be provided to voters by political representatives.

To maintain the sanctity of the polling area, election campaigning is prohibited within a 100-meter radius of polling stations, and solicitation of votes in this area is strictly forbidden.

In terms of voter identification, the Election Officer clarified that voter identity slips must not contain any candidate symbols or names. Every voter is required to bring one of the Commission-prescribed identification options to the polling station to cast their vote. Only those whose names appear on the voter list will be allowed to vote.

 Mittal concluded the meeting by highlighting the importance of adherence to these guidelines for a fair and transparent election process. All political entities and their representatives are expected to comply strictly with these rules.
