Kolkata, March 30 (IANS) Over 5,000 complaints have been registered by political parties via the Samadhan app in poll-bound West Bengal, an Election Commission official said here on Wednesday.
Grievances by parties outnumber those by citizens.
Out of the total 9,914 grievances lodged via the app so far, 5,276 are by political parties, said Election Commission official Amitjyoti Bhattacharya.
“From parties there are 5,276 complaints. Out of this, 4,765 have been disposed and 511 grievances are under process of disposal,” Bhattacharya said.
The rest of the complaints are by citizens, he said.
