It’s Up To Us Now – Part 19

June 3rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Second, Middle India needs to create a base in every constituency that does three things. First, each member agrees to vote. Second, each member agrees to vote for the candidate selected by the group in that constituency – a candidate who stands for the ‘pretty good principles’ as outlined previously. Finally, each member agrees to be counted.

Now look at the scenario. There will be in every constituency a Middle India group consisting of 1-2 lakh voters, all agreeing to vote for the candidate from one of the two national parties who is committed to upholding the “pretty good principles.” Given that each of the parties has an existing support base and most of this Middle India haven’t been bothering to vote in the past, this 1-2 lakh voting population is the swing vote that can transform the election in an irreversible way.

No longer will people be able to say that their vote does not count.

Continued tomorrow.

    This is a pretty good idea Rajesh. Have to start something for this… Really this has a lot of potential. I think deciding who stands for a set of ‘pretty good principles’ could involve arguments but surely worth it.
