Bengal Model

The Election Commission wants to conduct the 2012 UP Legislative Assembly Elections in the same model as the West Bengal Assembly Elections 2011. Deploying booth-level officers at every polling station and expenditure observers, central forces in each booth, webcasting of polls, besides texting of polling status each minute were some of the innovative ways that were used in the West Bengal Elections. A senior official of the Election Commission said, "Qureishi considers the UP polls the next big milestone of his career. Hence, the flurry of activity."
