voting rights ...

Did you know that there exists 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 to the presiding election officer that he doesn't want to vote for 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 FOR 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 re-polling done. Not only that, the candidature of the contestants stands cancelled and they cannot contest the re-polling, since the people have already expressed their decision on them..


This would instil fear into parties forcing them to look for genuine candidates for the elections. This would bring a dynamic change in 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...


Use your voting right for a better INDIA
