2019 LOKSABHA ELECTION


2019 LOKSABHA ELECTION

2019 Loksabha election in our country is announced. It is one of the biggest festivals of Democracy of India. India spends huge amount of money, manpower and other resources in election process. Whole government machinery is put to use for election. All political parties put their all resources for victory. Each and every political leader works overtime to increase their popularity and support among common men and tries to win election by hook or crook.  As per my personal views generally a MP candidates spends around 3 to 5 crores in their constituency for advertisement and other expenses.

In Indian parliament 543 members are elected and on an average three candidates fights election from a constituency and if spends minimum 4 crores the total comes to 12 crores for one constituency. Means the total estimated spending for 543 seats are as follows :-
12 crores x 543 seats = 65,16,00,00,000 (6516 crores)
The above figure is only for candidate’s expenditure.

The cost to government is not known. The cost of manpower, infrastructure, safety and security arrangements are very huge. After completion of election the next government recovers these spending from common men to fill the government treasury. The common men and economy bears the unnecessary weight of election expenses on their shoulder. If the above huge budget is used for development of nation could yield a big change.

HERE I WOULD LIKE TO CLEAR THAT I AM NOT AGAINST ELECTION BUT AGAINST UNNECESSARY HEAVY EXPENDITURE ON ELECTION CAMPAIGN. ELECTION SHOULD BE DONE IN SIMPLE AND COST EFFICIENT WAY SO THAT FUNDS AND RESOURCES MAY BE USED FOR BETTERMENT OF NATION.

Low Voting Percentage

Low voting in 3rd phase of general election 2009 is the cause of concern for all politicians, election commission, NGO and every concerned person. Various reasons are behind the same, some of them are as follows :-

- Peoples don't want to vote for corrupt/criminals

- Heat Wave (Rising temperature) and dusty warm air waves

- Many of us think it is not important and doesn't matter if my one vote is not cast (Every vote is important)

- Names shifted to some other places due to changes in electoral list and voter is unable to find where to vote?

- Tactics (paying money, distributing alcohol, etc) by Political parties to stop particular type of voters from casting vote when they are sure that these vote will goes to their opponent

- Boycott Call by naxalists/maoist/terrorist groups

- voters are too much busy with his/her own life

I think timing of vote must be increased because during the day timing between 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM peoples do not prefers to go out of home because of too much heat and warm waves of air which affects health so voting process can be started from 7.00 a.m morning and may goes up to 7.30 in evening.

Also all the polling booths must have arrangement of drinking water, fans, proper lighting system and separate toilets for ladies and gents must be their.

May 7 - Fourth phase across 85 constituencies

May 13 - Fifth phase in 86 constituencies

May 16 - Counting of Votes

By June 2 the 15th Lok Sabha will be constituted

The big question is will it once again be the Congress-led UPA? Or will the BJP-led NDA return to government? And who will be Next Big Boss of country Mr. Manmohan Singh again or will L K Advani Or Some third one. Many Political calculations will change this time in view of latest delimitations.

In this election two candidates are declared prime ministerial candidates, Manmohan Singh and L.K Advani.

But in one and half month till the last poll is cast the scenario will take a lot of changes and many factors will affect polling campaign. Some big issues are economic slowdown, increasing prices, corruption, etc.
