Electoral rolls - response from Manivannan

Dear Friends,

Now that the posts on ‘Electoral Roll’ appear to have concluded, it’s time to respond to the issues raised. Many of the issues raised such as ‘bad system’, ‘where the buck stops?’, ‘dedicated official is an oxymoron’ etc are generic and serious in nature; let’s examine the issues with facts and figures.

Facts are important because, such a forum, having committed citizens who have time and energy to contribute positively to the state, must be exposed to facts and not subsist on the assumptions, however enticing they may be!

Sincere Regrets and next date.

Dear Murali and friends,

My sincere regrets for postponing the meeting. I apologize for the inconvenience caused. The law and order situation at Mysore on that day kept me busy. Coming Saturday (11th) is the day for scrutiny of the nominations. Hence we can have the meeting tentatively on 18th (Saturday), and if we miss that, then it is only after the elections.
