A powerful weapon "49 O" | India election
I got an interesting mail from one of my friend. This mail is very important. Please read throughout the post.
Just resignation of the ministers is not the only thing that will make difference. How much is it going to change if Mr. Vilasrao goes and Mr. Shinde comes. If you see the back track record of Mr. Shinde, its even worst than Mr. Deshmukh.
In the next general elections people will take out their frustrations on Congress and BJP will come into power with the same old candidates that are equally incompetent enough as the Congress candidates are, and finally we are in the same soup.
What i personally believe is, we need to change these candidates (some of them are not even literate enough to be eligible for the polls) and allowing new candidates to enter politics who are young, competent, highly educated, dynamic but not getting the right platform & chance.
Now this is the time "49 O" comes into picture. Of course, the party people will not change their candidates by themselves, it is, we the people of India shall force them to change.
Constitution Allows "I Vote Not to Vote" Are we really aware 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 for 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 cancel led 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 not only bring fear into parties but also a look for genuine candidates for their parties for election.
This would probably 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. Seems to be a wonderful weapon against Corrupt Politicians and Political 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. Either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O)! Please pass it on to as many people as you can so that everybody is aware of such provisions before they finally go for vote.
Do not worry about those who have come through boats...
Our forces can defeat them.
WORRY about those who have come through votes....
those are our REAL ENEMIES
