Amaravati: Ahead of local body polls, Andhra Pradesh government has launched a mobile app with an aim to prevent the corrupt practices in election.

Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy launched the app called 'Nigha' at his camp office in Tadepalli, Amaravati.

 

Through the Nigha app, any person can complain about the wrong practices by anyone during the campaign for upcoming civic polls.

People can inform about the distribution of money, gifts or liquor, continuation of the campaign even after permitted time, sticking campaign material on houses without permission of the owner, using mikes beyond a permissible audio limit, or inflammatory speeches.

Complainants may send photos, audios or videos of an incident through the app, following which the offender will be identified with GPS and appropriate action will follow.

 

Anyone filing a complaint, need not  share his/her personal details and the identity would be kept secret.
