JAAGO aur sabko JAGAO

Hey I'm Raj, so finally you decided to wake up!!
For people getting confused what this is all about, visit
While I was watching the Dada play his last Test match, I happened to watch a commercial which was trying to pass a social message and provoking people to vote without fail. Then out of my curiosity I checked the above website and noted that Jaago re! One Billion Votes is a nonprofit, nonpartisan campaign to educate people on using their voting rights better, coupled with a nationwide voter registration drive covering 35 cities.
All veterans in our country simply say that they are optimistic above the youngistan and expect the next generation to bring the change and we the youngsters who are amid various social and cultural divides are looking forward to an indigenous Obama.
Now we are months away from another general election and elect a person who can change things on our country. Thanks to our regulators our financial sector is not as badly effected as most other countries but then we are facing bigger problems due to the growing communal divide, terrorism, corruption, poverty, illiteracy, infra-structure and many more and we also need a person to lead such positive changes.
So before we hit the polling booth here, 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 canceled 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 bring fear 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 ??
Anyways this seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India. So now on let's show our power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting, so don't miss this chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and spread this information, so that we can really use this power to save our nation'. Use your voting right for a better INDIA.
