The Aam Aadmi Party also claimed that it has already met success with the endeavour as locals and party volunteers in Badli village Assembly constituency caught some people red-handed allegedly distributing liquor bottles at night.
"We have bought 2,000 spy cams and deployed them at various places in slums and jhuggis to put an end to the age-old practice by other parties of buying votes through distribution of cash and liquor," an AAP leader said.
“AAP has deployed its specially trained volunteers and also educated the voters not to fall prey to such tactics. It had planned to snoop on the vulnerable areas and record any malpractice,” the party leader added.
The recordings would then be submitted to the Election Commission and a complaint will be filed.
"Today we tasted our first success, locals and volunteers caught a big haul of liquor in Badli which was brought in a van for distribution at night," the AAP leader said, adding that the footage has been submitted to the Election Commission.
AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal said that the party will neither buy votes nor allow others to do so. "We will neither buy votes using money and liquor, nor will we allow others to do so," he said.
The party has planned to keep a watch on susceptible areas and has even prepared a detailed list of these areas. It is planning to keep a strict vigil on these areas. The list includes slum clusters, rural areas, rehabilitated colonies and areas lying on city's border.
