BBMP Elections in Namma Bengaluru


BBMP elections draw to a close and even after the campaigns done by the various organizations and political parties, the percentage of population that turned up to vote was apathetical. The current count reported at 5PM by News 9 was 35%. So, what this means is that the candidates that are getting elected are not on a majority consensus. If you think that two people pitted against each other are as bad as each other. Then is it justified not to vote. Well, I somehow think differently. You need to pick someone, even if it is a “best out of the worst”. If they don’t live upto the expectations, pick the next candidate the next time. Atleast then, they would understand that a electorate majority does count.

You cannot have an elected body which doesn’t have a majority consensus in a democratic environment.
