Luring voters with false promises
Everyday, Mumbai newspapers are flashing an ad strip issued by the Collectorate Mumbai, exorting the voters with tagline
"Get voter ID card within a week" either by applying on line or by contacting voter's helpline 1290.
As, I had applied for new ID card with my changed address and photo submitted as back as on 29 July 09 and recd. an ack.
The Electoral registration Officer had told that someone from the office will soon visit us for verification and the card may get
isssued within a month. None of the abo ve happened. So, when I contacted 1290 (Voter helpline) ,the responder gave
me a mobile no of the concerned person ( Mr Gangurde) . When contacted , he maintained that the issue of card will further
take one month . If that is so , why luring the citizens with this ad blitzkerg of false promise of getting ID Card within a week?
Or is it applicable for only online applicants and not those who spent their time to personally go and submit an application
with proof of photo to the electoral officer ?
I would like to know the experience of other voters.
