Panaji. Elections are going to be held in 5 states in the country next month. These include Goa. In view of these elections, all the states have started preparing in their own way, but talking about Goa, there will be a different view during the elections. It is worth noting that with the precautions related to corona infection, Goa officials are ready to conduct elections with a new thinking this time. According to the information, this time preparations are going on in Goa to conduct elections in an eco-friendly manner.

Goa, the state with 40 assembly seats, is going to conduct elections in an eco-friendly manner without using any plastic material. From bamboo baskets to coconut shells this election season all things, will be local and eco-friendly in Goa.

Will cast vote at bamboo booth

On the day of polling, voters will cast their vote at the bamboo booth and at the same time there has been decoration with coconut leaves making good arrangements for taking selfies. Goa Chief Electoral Officer Kunal, while talking to a private channel, said that this election will be a model election as only natural products will be used in it.

He says that the natural features make Goa a beautiful place. From bamboo to coconut, many things are available locally. The state has a deep connection with nature and we at the state commission wanted to use the locally sourced material to promote the culture of Goa and we thought what better opportunity than a state election? He said that Goa would also remain clean and green with the use of bamboo, coconut, shells and the beauty of the place would also increase.

It was told that there are 1,722 polling stations in Goa and all of them will be decorated with natural products. It will promote local work, reduce carbon footprint and make Goa elections different from other states.

Is there anything special for sanitizer and mask?

Apart from this, coconut husks and bamboo trays will be used to keep sanitizers and masks. We will keep bamboo canes in the polling stations to throw away the used gloves and masks. Goa’s Chief Electoral Officer said that this time our emphasis is on those items which we will get locally – coconut, leaves, bamboo, conch shell etc. All the local artisans have been contacted by the BLOs (booth level officials) to ensure that the product is ready on time. He said that when the voters of Goa step into the booth, they will feel surrounded by all the things that make Goa special.
