Over 5700 electors sign pledge for ethical voting

ITANAGAR, Mar 27: In its continuing efforts to eradicate electoral malpractices from the society, the Nyishi Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has been able to gather the signatures of more than 5700 electors who have pledged to vote ethically and abide by the guidelines of the NBCC’s ‘Clean election movement’.
While 4000 voters in the capital complex have signed on the ‘pledge card’, the number of people who signed on it from the ‘expenditure sensitive’ Yachuli constituency was 1700, informed an NBCC release.
The church leaders appealed to all to exercise their adult franchise independently, without any fear or being influenced.
The NBCC has been conducting the ‘Clean election campaign’ on a mission mode to eradicate the deep-rooted electoral malpractices from the Arunachalee society.
Meanwhile, continuing its campaign for ‘money-free’ election in Ziro-Hapoli in Lower Subansiri district, the Apatani Youth Association (AYA) on Tuesday organized a programme at MTM BEd College in Hapoli, where AYA leaders explained the flip side of the money culture in elections, informed an AYA release.
The association said it will conduct its ‘platform speech-cum-MoU signing’ with the contesting candidates of the Ziro-Hapoli constituency on 31 March.
