Pink Booths Established in Gautam Buddh Nagar
The pink polling booths have being set up in Gautam Nagar where only female staff, including presiding officers, polling officers, micro observers and security personnel are being appointed. The voters can easily differentiate the booth from others, due to distinguished pink décor, including pink walls and table covers.
In a first, one pink booth is set up in each of the five assembly segments of Gautam Buddh Nagar (including Noida, Dadri, Jewar, Sikandrabad and Khurja) for conducting polling. The move is in line with government’ initiative to motivate female participation to vote and these pink booths will be managed entirely by the efficient female staff.
In Gautam Buddh Nagar district, a pink booth is established at Bal Bharati School in Sector 21; similarly, two pink booths have also been set up at different places in Khurja and Sikandrabad. The booth will have security staff that is assigned from outside the district. The centres will have male security staff with the female security guards as well to ensure smooth operations.
