Delhi’s Election Commission has for the first time set its eyes on the 16 lakh voters from southern states and is reaching out to them so that they can exercise their vote and play an active role in deciding the fate of the seven high-profile Parliamentary seats in the forthcoming elections.  The move is aimed at  increasing the voting percentage in the capital, the seat of governance in the country, and also to ensure that people from other regions living in the capital do not feel left out.

 The Delhi Election Office has planned several awareness programmes including ‘nukkad natak’ and musical programmes in the run-up to the elections and also roped in Tollywood singers to send the message across in areas inhabited by people from Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the capital.  “The nukkad natak will be performed in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam,” an official said. Around 16 lakh people from these states live in Delhi.
