An awareness program on Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails (VVPT), as part of the “No to plastic, Yes to Clean Election Campaign”, was held with Clean Election Campaign District Icon at PWD Ward II Junction, Kohima, on March 30.

According to DIPR, delivering a short speech, district icon, Thejakhrienuo Nakhro stated that a clean election has little to do with candidates and more to do with the voters. 

“If we want good, responsive people’s government and development, let us come out and vote on April 11 with a clear conscience” she said. 

Thejakhrienuo pointed out that in 2018, the State capital was ranked the 2nd most un-liveable city in India and urged the people to stop using plastics to save the environment. She appealed to young electors to avail the opportunity to be part of a clean election process.

The campaign was organized by Kohima Municipal Council and Music Task Force (YRS), Green Team Kohima and Election Department and various NGO’s. EVM use was demonstrated by master trainer, Chubayanger. A welcome speech was delivered by Panchayat chairman PWD, Neibulie Kiewhuo. 

Concluding remarks were spoken by MTF project director, Hovithal Sothu. AG Lotha Church Choir Kohima presented a song on Clean Elections.
