with one comment

An interesting public interest litigation has been filed before the Supreme Court of Indiaseeking a direction to hold elections only in cooler months to attract higher voter participation in the election process.The petition filed by an NGO, Save Aam Aadmi, has claimed that the average votingduring winter is comparatively higher than the average voting during warmer season.”India is one of the poorest nations of the globe and it is criminal to waste monetary resources when it can be best avoided,” the petition said. “Large number of government staff does not report for poll duty.” it was further claimed.

The petition has claimed that there are instances of both voters and poling officials dying of heat strokes. “The election commission itself admits to its personnel getting tired and exhausted resulting in quarrels,” the petition said.

“Period between 16 January to 15 February is the best period to hold elections because in January the plains experience spring like weather of European countries and in February the ice melts in the hilly areas,” the petition has suggested.

Claiming that ‘India is a power deficit nation and power deficit is highest during summers’ the petition has appealed that elections to be carried out during winter. The petition has also claimed that the normal functioning of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are affected during summer season.

The petition will come up for hearing on Friday before a bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia.
