Bhopal, Oct 22: The Election Commission of India (ECI) is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the upcoming Assembly elections will be conducted in a free and fair manner.

In order to check the violation of model code of conduct, the ECI will be watching the Twitter accounts of six political parties and 18 political leaders in the country. Tweets of politicians like Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Sonia Gandhi, Digvijaya Singh, Uma Bharti, Narendra Modi, Sushma Swaraj, Rahul Gandhi, LK Advani, Shashi Tharoor, Nitin Gadkari, Ravi Shankar, Shahnawaz Hussain, Rajnath Singh, Rajeev Shukla, Mukhtar Naqvi, Omar Abdulla, Ajay Maken and Yedyurrapa will be under scanner constantly.

Election Commission to monitor websites of politicians, parties, newspapers

This will be carried out with the help of textual information extraction (TIE) a system operated by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) Pune.

As of now Facebook pages and accounts of these politicians and political parties seem to be safe. However the politicians will have to be on their toes now.
