In the riot-affected areas of Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of UP, the Election Commission is distributing ‘Vishwas Parchi’ (confidence slip) assuring the locals of providing security and making an appeal to cast their votes freely and without any fear.
There are two Lok Sabha constituencies —- Muzaffarnagar and Kairana —- in the two districts and polling is scheduled there on April 10.
On the Vishwas Parchi, contact numbers of local police officers, including the SHOs, police stations and the control room are displayed with a message that there was nothing to worry about and voters can cast their vote without getting influenced by any person or group and also that they will get immediate response from these contact numbers any time.

“Distribution of the Vishwas Parchi is an innovative confidence building step. These slips are being distributed in riot affected areas of Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts so that voters can exercise their franchise without fear,” said Umesh Sinha, Chief Electoral Officer of UP.
CEO said that the administration and police officers have been directed to immediately visit the place if any person complained of a threat.
He also said that the officers have also been directed to regularly visit the areas to build confidence among the people. Posters with such messages would be displayed in the villages identified as sensitive.
In Muzaffarnagar, such slips are being distributed in various villages falling in three police station areas of Budhana, Bhaura Kala and Shahpur. Muzaffarnagar district magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said that these slips have been distributed among 10,000 families so far.
“We are also spending at least four hours in these villages every day meeting the locals, including the riot affected families, assuring them that the situation was normal and they can cast their votes without any fear,” the DM said.
Nearly 3,500 voters in Muzaffarnagar who were displaced after the riots have registered themselves on new addresses. The administration has made arrangements for them casting their votes in concerned polling stations.
