Got this from facebook:
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/she doesn't want to vote anyone! Yes such a feature is
available, but obviously past + present 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, 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 is the best way of showing our protest. Lets tell maximum people to use this.
