I got this email from my friend. I m curious to know whether its true or not?
If true from where can i get detailed info about it?

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 he cannot contest the re-polling, since
people had already expressed their decision on him.

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, and election
commission has not revealed such a feature to the

please spread this news to as many as you know…
Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties
in India… show your power, expressing your desire
not to vote anybody, is even more powerful than
voting… so don’t miss your chance.

So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and
pass this info on…

I have always agrued about this point with my friends. I dont like to vote in elections. Some of my friends always insisted that it is the duty of every law abiding citizen to vote.  But I always maintain my stand, that if I dont like any of the candidates then why should I vote for anyone. To vote for someone means that I have faith, trust on that person that he would do proper things, which nobody does. So why I am forced to select out many dirty politiciation to select one to rule over me. So I always argue that if you want my opinion , let me decide who is most suitable, and if I dont find any one suitable than I MUST HAVE choice to say that NONE OF THESE GOONS are competent for governance.

It is known fact that most of people ,with little intelligence and understanding ,do not vote, and all the votes which are casted are from selected classes of people and therefore a COMMON man has no value becuase s/he dosent vote. Politician wants to please the people who using their power of vote.

So if it is true that I HAVE RIGHT TO VOTE FOR NOBODY I will vote in next election, to let realise the those silly people about power of people’s vote and their opinion.

How can I find this is true or not. So if you are having blog please do blog about this and try to get answer.

Thank you.
