If you are a young voter seeking to make a conscious decision in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections,this website giving details about all aspects of the polls might help you in making right choice while casting your ballot.
From maps of constituencies to the election schedule to the working of Electronic Voting Machines,the site,launched by cartoonist Neeraj Gupta combines the technical information needed by the electorate with highlights of the flawed functioning of our political system.
So,the next time you want to know the percentage of people with criminal background making legislations for you or details regarding the states which send the maximum notorious men to Parliament,you can log on to http://www.voteforindia.com,the website initiated by independent organisation ‘Mass for Awareness’.
And if you desire to have a look at some of the “most embarrassing moments” in the history of our legislatures,you will find video recordings of incidents such as infamous cash-for-vote scam and the unruly scenes of violence witnessed in the Uttar Pradesh assembly among others.
“We chose to invest our energy in an online venture because that is where you can catch the upwardly mobile young generation which is mostly oblivious of the democratic process in the country,” said Gupta,who is also running a campaign to exhort the electorate to cast their votes.
