Telugu Civil Servant Raghava brought novelty to elections

What was the novelty of Bihar assembly election? Webcasting, which enabled the Chief Election Commissioner to watch the polling live on LCD screens while sitting in the Nirvachan Sadan in New Delhi. Polling in more than 550 of the 10,868 booths were webcasted live in the first phase when 47 constituencies went to the polls. High-speed servers have been put in place and trained personnel equipped with laptops and webcams deputed at the selected booths for the purpose. Electricity department officials have been asked to ensure uninterrupted power supply to these booths. Gensets have been installed in places where power availability is a problem. This year the Election Commission has monitored the entire election process in Tamil Nadu with web cameras at all the polling stations.
