Conducting free, fair, participative & safe elections in Bihar is a priority, says CEC Sunil Arora

Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora has said that conducting free, fair, participative and safe elections in Bihar is a priority. Mr Arora said this during a briefing meeting organised by the Election Commission of India for Observers to be deployed for the forthcoming Bihar Legislative Assembly elections as also bye-elections across the States.

Speaking to the Observers, Mr Arora gave a global perspective on the impact of Covid 19 on election schedules around the world and the detailed deliberation and assessments done by the Commission before taking the decision to conduct elections in Bihar. He stressed the need to be extra careful as this election will be keenly watched by the world community being the largest election in the world to be held amid the pandemic. The Chief Election Commissioner stated that all efforts must be made to instill confidence in the voter to come to the polling station on election day to cast  vote safely and freely.

During the meeting, Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra pointed out that two Special Expenditure Observers have already been appointed by the Commission and if required more Special Observers would also be appointed as the election process progresses.

Speaking on the occasion, Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar said the officers should always bear in mind they are the actual face of ECI on the ground.

This meeting was uniquely positioned as a blend of virtual and physical gathering with more than 700 General, Police and Expenditure Observers joining virtually from 119 locations across the country and about 40 Observers posted in Delhi joining in person.
