To counter any attempt by its rivals to woo voters through distribution of cash and liquor, AAP has installed 2,000 high resolution spy cameras in and around slums of Delhi and said it was their attempt to end the age-old practice of buying votes.

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 red-handed some people 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.

Delhi Assembly polls are notorious for "buying" voters a night before the elections by offering them alcohol and money.

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 said.

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," he said, adding that the footage has been submitted to the EC.

AAP Convener, Arvind Kejriwal also said 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," Kejriwal said.

The party has planned to keep a watch on susceptible areas and has even prepared a detailed list of these areas and planning to keep a strict vigil on these areas.

The list include slum clusters, rural areas, rehabilitated colonies and areas lying on city's border.
