Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat said on Wednesday that the ‘Citizen Vigilance Mobile App‘ will be used to make elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Mizoram free and fair at the end of this year. He said that apart from this, accessibility auditors for disabled and elderly voters will be installed to ensure smooth elections in these four states which will be the first in the history of Indian elections. Rawat, who came to Madhya Pradesh on a three-day tour with the full Benches of the Election Commission, said, “The theme of the commission is conducting a simple election. Which means that people with disabilities, who are having difficulty, should try to get them to the mainstream of elections. ”
Rawat told that the first use of ‘Citizen Vigilance Mobile App’ was performed in Bangalore. This app will be useful for conducting free and fair elections. If a candidate violates the Code of Conduct for winning the elections, through this app, any person can upload his video and report to the Election Commission.

He said that along with smooth elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Mizoram, ‘Accessibility Observer’ will also be sent who will know what we have done to facilitate these voters. Rawat said that these observers will see that they have no difficulty and their involvement in the election process is assured. This step is being taken for the first time in the history of Indian elections. Rawat said, “There is some misconception about EVM that it is from China and Japan. There is no such thing. All EVMs are made by Bharat Electronics Limited and Electronics Corporation of India Limited. ”
Rawat said, “Divyaang and elderly people will be marked first on BLO level (booth level officer). Volunteers appointed by the District Electoral Officer (Free Shuttle Friend) will leave them back to the house after casting their votes, by bringing them home from the necessity. Each polling station will be provided with the facility of separate voting from the queue.
