New Delhi: The objective of Election Commission of India is to ensure maximum participation of voters during general elections. Keeping this objective into consideration, Dr. Ranbir Singh, CEO Election Commission of Delhi, has emphasised on special awareness programs to be carrried out in 30 Assembly constituencies in NCT of Delhi where several voters did not turn up for voting in Lok Sabha Election -2019.
Since large number of voters did not participate in the Lok Sabha Election 2019, the special voter awareness campaign is designed to motivate such voters so that they are encouraged to participate in elections to be held on February 8 in Delhi.
In this regard, street plays on the theme of 'voter participation' and 'functioning of EVM/VVPAT' were performed in Uttam Nagar and Rajinder Nagar. Various banners with messages were displayed at both the locations to sensitise voters about election related information.
A nukkad team performed the play. Activities like puppet show, dance and songs were performed to spread awareness. The slogans 'Aap ka vote aap ka Adhikar' and 'Delhi ka dabang vo jo de vote' were particularly liked by the crowd.
Accordingly, a special drive of awareness campaign was held on Thursday. Various activities to sensitise voters were organised in Kheda Park, Anand Vihar,Uttam Nagar and Bindapur areas in Uttam Nagar Assembly Constituency in South West District of Delhi and G-Block Narayna Vihar under Rajinder Nagar Assembly Constituency in New Delhi District.
