Mock BBMP Elections to protest mockery of Elections
In view of Government of Karnataka's continued reluctance to hold immediate elections to the BBMP, LokSatta Party Karnataka has decided to express its anguish via a mock election to be conducted on Sunday, 21st of February 2010 - the earlier notified date for BBMP elections. LokSatta will open a mock polling booth at Town Hall at 10:00 AM and conduct the proceedings of an election.
The program is intended to highlight the casual attitude of the Government towards grassroots democracy. Speaking on behalf of all the citizens of Namma Bengaluru, who are unrepresented in BBMP for more than three years, LokSatta intends to send a loud and clear message to the Government to fulfill its constitutional obligation and adhere to High Court ruling by conducting elections before March 30th, 2010.
LokSatta invites all citizens, political parties, resident welfare associations, civic organizations to this event. Jaagte Raho! and SmartVote expressed their support for this event.
