Below 45% voter turnout
But Mumbai does not care.
Yes, it was not even a boycott. Just pure political apathy.
Elections did not even merit a holiday in this commercial hub.
Political parties knew this, considering the low key and low cost campaign.
Or perhaps they didn’t have the guts to face the Mumbaikars?
In most cases, the usual bungles still prevailed
Missing names in lists, duplicate names, long queues with celebrities voting first….inaccessible polling stations…
hostile poll officers…threats of dire consequences for both voters and non -voters….nothing really changes…no matter how technologically advanced the process is…until our thinking process undergoes a radical change, the situation will remain the same.
