The ruling BJP in Gujarat launched the ‘President Dashboard’ on Tuesday, a computer application that a party leader claimed would not only collect and analyse personal information from voters, but would also accurately predict poll results.
According to a press release, party workers will use it to reach out to nearly 50 lakh households across the state to collect information and solicit voter feedback.
“Each booth in charge would visit households in his area to collect information such as family members, birth dates, marriage anniversaries, and whether or not they had taken advantage of any government scheme. This information will be stored on the server of our party “Yagnesh Dave, media coordinator for the Gujarat BJP, stated.
“CR Paatil will be able to view this data on his desktop or laptop by using the President Dashboard application. It is the country’s first application of its kind. Each voter will also be identified. Whether he is a BJP supporter, a party office bearer, an opposition party supporter, or a skeptic, “He continued.
Dave claimed that on election day, the booth in-charge would sit outside the booth with the same software and tick mark those who came to vote, and that this data would predict who would win by the evening.
Paatil stated on the occasion that voters will be contacted at the booth level and that information gathered from them will be analysed using the dashboard application.
