People say Congress is great or NDA was better or Third front is best. There are infinite debates goining on everywhere to resolve who is better. NDA or UPA or Third Front or XYZ party. But if we have careful look at the reality there are lot major issues which are ignored by both the parties from last 50 years
Can you ever think of joining your kids in a government school in todays competition? If that is the case, just imagine the fate of the people who cannot afford costly education. What will be their future in coming years?
If you are planning to void your vote
Since the ballot paper / Electronic voting machine (EVM) contains only the list of candidates, a voter cannot record his vote under Section 49-O directly. He must inform the presiding officer at the election booth. This violates the secrecy of the ballot. However, with paper ballot a different method is used to "waste" ones vote, which is stamping on multiple candidates. In fact this was the standard method of giving null votes without violating secrecy before the advent of the EVM.
At present, in an election, a winner will be declared irrespective of the number of 'non-votes'. However, a note of every 'non-vote' will be made with the Election Officer, and the total number of non-voters will, presumably, be available under the Right to Information Act.
It's time for all of us to rush and save our house before the fire catches up and burns us away!!!
