East Delhi RWAs Joint Front organised an event on April 8 to generate awareness amongst residents of Delhi to vote on April 15. A pledge was taken and signed by various RWA bodies, that they will work in their localities till the voting date of MCD elections and will be at polling booths with their family members, friends, neighbours and local relatives. The effort is being initiated, as in the last MCD elections, the voting percentage ranged between 29% to 64% that clearly meant that almost, 36% to 71% of residents of Delhi had not taken any interest in the voting. "This time, we want this limit to touch at least 80% so that the elected councillor is under the pressure of masses. The gathering included a good number of RWAs from various parts of Delhi, local market association and other NGOs and religious bodies," said B S Vohra, president, East Delhi RWAs Joint Front. The RWAs made various slogans to promote voting in Delhi. Promotional songs were sung by kids and elders.
