Section 49-O of the Indian Constitution
Posted by @ B H i on November 25, 2006
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,
people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring
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….
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.
Use your voting right for a better INDIA.
