Hello everyone. Have read ur comments and am of the opinion that Indians staying abroad should be given the right to vote too. Reasons are many. The NRIs have the same access to the Indian channels where they get to know the day to day events of India. The Indian programmes too update them with the different festivals. They too enjoy watching the the progress and feel disgusted when they watch the Indian Politicians misbehaving in the parliament. What guarantee we have the people living in India and who are on the spot noticing the politicians of their regions fulfilling or not their electoral promises get to vote the right person. Ninetynine percent chance is that everyone makes a wrong choice. Every time there are elections the policitians come out with promises and promises which they never accomplish and at the end of their electoral term they put the blame on the previous candidate or the previous government. So allowing the NRIs to vote will not in anyway tamper the electoral process.
 
On the contrary PEOPLE OF LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES WHO LIVE IN EUROPE ARE OBLIGED TO VOTE ON THE ELECTION DAY. THEY HAVE TO TAKE LEAVE FROM THEIR EMPLOYERS TO ASSIST THE ELECTORAL PROCESS. Even Europeans living abroad send their votes by post. This is very common.
 
The LAZY INDIAN SYSTEM does not want to take the trouble of counting votes coming by mail and also letting the NRIs in their regions to vote.

well If I m not mistaken U wrote something like "we cn support without attacking the opposition " in an earlier topic of calling the IF pak forum. I had to search it out 4 the exact words LOL  Do post ur views & any misgivings U may B having against allowing NRIs to vote Smile
As of now I dont C anything wrong in it . If someone takes interest & cares enuf to participate in the electoral process of their country it shud B Ok. PPl vote here without even giving much thought simply on the basis of region & caste. But I ll reconsider my views after reading other views here.

I totally agree with what you said. I think voting should be limited to the citizens of each country. If you're living abroad, how will you know the day to day needs of people living in India?

I think they should be given a chance to vote for the president/prime minister of the country they are living in, because they know their needs.

You make a very good point too. Hmm....now I'm undecided on this issue.

if they have changed the citizenship and lay off the indian citizenship they will certainly be given the right to vote for the leaders of the country where they live. if they are not yet a citizenship of that country that they live in they will certainly have no rights or should be given any rights to vote in the countries where they live in. many people who live overseas have television channels of the countries where they come from so they pretty much know the news about the life of the countries they come from. and as long as they are the citizenship of india, they should receive equal rights of being able to vote and choose. even though perhaps the possibility is little but many people who had lived overseas for few years returned back to live in india.
