'Technical glitches' affect webcast of polling 18.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Live streaming on ECI's website disrupted The webcasting of the polling process at 2,687 booths across the State on Thursday was not as successful as planned as "technical glitches" affected the live streaming on the Election Commission of India's website. Moreover, it didn't serve the desired purpose as many polling booths where untoward incidents occurred were not under webcasting. Of the total 54,294 polling booths in the State, 2,687 had been identified for webcasting, including 593 in Bangalore. Curious citizens, who wanted to watch the live streaming on the ECI's website in the morning, were disappointed. Even officials monitoring the webcast at the Bruhat Bangalore Mahangara Palike's (BBMP) head office said they had to go to separate search engines because the ECI website was not accessible. The webcast didn't resume later in the day. As the live streaming on the Internet and search engines was affected, ECI officials were not able to monitor several polling booths.

The same old problem of missing names... 18.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Voters mainly from Bangalore Central and Bangalore South constituencies faced problems at polling booths and some returned home disappointed without getting inked on their thumb as their names were found missing on the voters' list. Confusion over polling booths also led to a lot of frustration among both the voters and the polling officials in several instances. Some people expressed their ire over officials at the booths insisting on Aadhaar cards. Suresh H G, employee of a private company and a resident of Byatarayanapura, said that at his booth several people were put in a spot when the poll officials insisted on Aadhaar card. Standing under the scorching sun, 37-year-old Jay David searched for the names of his uncle R Benedict and grandmother Lourd Mary in the voter list at a polling booth in Tasker Town. However, his efforts turned futile as the polling staff there maintained that his family members cannot exercise their franchise as their names are not listed. Similarly, Seema B from Shivajinagar ...

TVCC won't monitor road works this time 17.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Under pressure, BBMP commissioner withdraws his order A paradise is in the making in Bangalore as the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike has undertaken asphalting of City roads with a whopping Rs 400 crore. However, the watchdog agency of the BBMP, the Technical Vigilance Cell under Commissioner (TVCC), which has unearthed at least Rs 15,000 crore worth of scams in the civic agency over the years, has been asked not to monitor or certify the quality of works. As is the tradition in the BBMP to carry out public works ahead of polls, this year too asphalting works worth Rs 400 crore have been assigned to the Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited (KRIDL) and, at a few places, the work is already under way. Sources in the BBMP said the asphalting was supposed to start immediately after getting the contract but at most of the places it is yet to begin. Keeping in view the scams that have taken place in the past, BBMP commissioner M Lakshminarayana had directed the TVCC to monitor the work but ...

Voter ID card errors spell trouble for booth officers 15.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Citizens blame them for mistakes in their EPICs In what can be termed the latest of problems plaguing the City during the electoral season, Booth Level Officers (BLOs) engaged at polling stations are having a tough time answering the queries of citizens who have received erroneous voter ID cards. Chandrashekhar, a government school teacher deployed as a BLO at Chokkasandra ward, was taken aback when a few residents took him to task as they had received voter cards filled with errors, like mismatch of photographs, incorrect dates of birth and wrongly spelt names. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Chandrashekhar said: "Our job is to only help the public in filling Form-6 and collecting the documents required for registration of voter identity cards. We, in turn, hand them over to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, which later furnishes the required information in the cards. But the people would not budge and they blame me instead." Ramya T C, another BLO working at a polling station located at Nagasandra ...

Motivating people to vote 14.4.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The State will go to polls this week. In addition to door-to-door campaigns by politicians, several private organisations, students and government agencies, such as the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), are chalking out innovative and attractive measures to inspire people to come out of their homes and vote. The message — even one vote counts — is being drilled into people's mind. In addition to the BBMP initiative, the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) has printed a message on its half-litre milk packets — "Your vote is precious. Vote on April 17 without fail." In another initiative, a group of women were seen drawing rangoli with the election as the central theme. The BBMP has converted the Kempegowda Park, right opposite its office, into a 'vote spot'. It has posters and art work erected by the students of an art school and if all this is not enough, there's also a local theatre group that has been going around the City urging people to vote through street plays and music ...
