So its better than what Maharahstra did in Lok Sabha. 60% of voters cast their votes. Mumbai did little better with 50% voters turnout. But I still think it was pathetic. Arunachal Pradesh did much better at 72%
Mumbai’s 50% land is occupied by slums. The city is on the edge of providing basic necessities like water and electricity to its people. The city is on terrorist radar and the Mumbai Police are ill-equipped to handle a terrorist attack. The infrastructure is a step away from breaking down and rampant corruption cripple the city but apparently for the people of Mumbai, this is really a non-issue as they continue to consider voting day as a holiday.
They are happy if they get to roam the malls. Two days before I was in a mall and I wished that the way people spent their time in Malls, they can spent a little time voting.
Unfortunately, sadly and regretfully Mumbai has failed again. I so much want to give a “tapli” to everyone who did not vote
But I did and so did everybody who I knew. So who didn’t vote? Really have to find these people
