Tableau on voting rights

- R-Day stage for awareness

Come January 26, the state election commission will send a “floating” message to enthuse voters.

The poll panel will parade a tableau on voter awareness at the Republic Day celebrations at Ranchi’s Morabadi grounds keeping in mind the approaching Lok Sabha as well as Assembly elections.

“Electoral awareness, which stands for voting without any fear and not under the influence of anyone, is what we would like to convey through the float,” said Abhay Kumar Rao, state’s deputy chief electoral officer.

“We would also urge eligible voters to get themselves enrolled in the electoral rolls if they haven’t done it so far,” he added.

However, with just four days to go, the commission’s tableau seems far from ready. “We are working on a war footing and sure of readying it on time,” said Imran Khan, an official who is overseeing construction work.

Khan said structures and boards would display effective messages while participants would enact live scenes atop the float to convey the same.

“The enactment, as seen in a street play, will show how conscious voters can bring prosperity in their constituencies by choosing the right candidates,” Khan added.

Similarly, a majority of floats that are being readied at Morabadi grounds for display on Republic Day have some message to convey. State tourism department will promote eco-tourism while social welfare department will speak about the benefits of anganwadi kendras and gram sabhas. The tableau of information public relations department will display centuries-old Maluti temples of Dumka.
