Election Officer Dispels Rumours of CCTV Malfunction in Shirur Constituency

District Collector and Election Officer Dr. Suhas Diwase has dismissed rumors suggesting that CCTV cameras at the Ranjangaon MIDC strong room, where the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) for the Shirur Lok Sabha constituency are stored, were switched off for a day.

Following an incident in the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, where CCTV cameras were reportedly switched off temporarily, similar concerns were raised about the strong room for the Shirur constituency. However, Dr. Diwase has firmly denied these claims.

“Every strong room is fully secured and continuously monitored by CCTV cameras. There are multiple layers of security, including representatives from all candidates and officials from the Election Commission of India. Watch towers have also been installed at all strong rooms. The rumors circulating in print and electronic media are entirely baseless,” clarified Dr. Diwase.

Previously, incidents of CCTV cameras being switched off were reported in Baramati and Satara. In Baramati, the NCP (SP) group took a strong stance and filed a complaint with the district collector, resulting in the CCTVs being reactivated. In Satara, the district collector issued a show cause notice to the CCTV contractor.

Meanwhile, NCP (SP) MLA Rohit Pawar expressed concerns over the alleged mismanagement on social media, highlighting the opposition parties’ doubts about the reliability of CCTV operations.

As the opposition continues to raise questions about the integrity of CCTV monitoring, it remains to be seen how the NCP (SP) group will respond to these ongoing concerns.
