Nyishi Baptist Church Council collects over 5,700 electors' sign pledge for ethical voting
Itanagar: In its continuing efforts to eradicate electoral malpractices from society, the Nyishi Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has been able to gather the signatures of more than 5,700 electors who have pledged to vote ethically and abide by the guidelines of the NBCC’s ‘Clean Election Movement’.
While 4,000 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 1,700, 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 missionary mode to eradicate the deep-rooted electoral malpractices from 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.
