Poll panel’s selfie campaign for a cause
The Election Commission has taken up a unique initiative in which it asked the voters to take a selfie after they cast their vote and send it to their email ID. The slogan of the campaign will be ‘Selfie Le Le Re’. Three top entries from each district will be given prizes. But the process of taking a selfie is a lengthy one in which the children will have to ask their parents to sign an affidavit, promising that they will definitely vote in the elections. The affidavit will be sent to the district magistrate who will send the selfie taken on the polling day to the Election Commission’s email id. The winners will be selected later and will be awarded on the National Voters Day.
