Section "49-0"

I don't generally do tagging, but I hope everyone in blogger world, tag this post. And as a formality, I would say, YOU ARE TAGGED. Please do.

The times of today demand that we people of India needs desperate change of politics on which our lives and future depend on. Every small change, every small contribution from each one of us is needed to help make difference to the life we live, for the better. I came across Section 49-O before but did not pay much attention. My dear friends, please read, understand and use section 49-O if needed.

What is Section '49-O'?

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 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 seemingly notorious 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... Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India... show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don't miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and pass this info on...

Jai Hind.
