Lok Sabha elections begin on April 7. The following state wise schedule shows when your state goes to polls. Along with our exams, submissions, it is important that we get ready to vote.
Carefully decide who your vote should go to. Discuss, think, decide. If you’re disillusioned and confused, remember the person and party and what they stand for is important. Do not get swayed by false inducements.
And finally, do not expect politics to solve all your problems, you are part of the solution. Solve them yourself.
State-wise See the profile of the candidates in your state – available on www.myneta.info. The ADR, investigates and compiles the information based on the sworn affidavits filed by the candidates. As per law, affidavits are required to be filed before the election commission, . Every candidate has to declare the following;
Criminal record: Violence, Rape, Murder, Dacoity, Fraud. Some candidates have serious crimes which include many of the above. You don’t want to vote for someone who has these qualities.
