Are you going to vote in the coming elections? If yes, fine. No? Not going for the election booth at all? Then you do
not have any right to blame our impotent politicians. Abstaining from the election process is other way of supporting
these useless politicians.
But if there is no good candidate, what to do? Is it your question? Here is the solution
Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1961 act, in section " 49-O" that a person can go
to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he
doesn't want to vote anyone!
Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these leaders have never disclosed it. This is called "49-O".
Why should you go and say " I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that
particular ward has received "49-O" votes more than 123, then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be
re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the
re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them..
This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would
change the way; of our whole political system.... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not
revealed such a feature to the public....
Please spread this news to as many as you know...
