A single mailer to all members of the election constituency costs lacs of rupees only postage, forget the cost of printing and stationary. It is worth? Can we go green? Our community is a highly educated one. Can't we ask all contestants to create a blog and post everything you want to on that and let ICAI share the link to all. Let people go to your blog, read, interact with the contestant and decide. When even income tax returns are made mandatory to file online, please don't argue that rural members don't have access to technology or internet.
Can't we ban all postal mailers? Contribute to environment and save cost too?
Is it possible that ICAI asks each contestants to write a mailer with limitations of maximum words and distribute all mailers together along with its list of candidates and let people decide?
Just floating some ideas to ponder.. Appreciate a debate and your views. After all we are all concerned for environment, for cost and elections... Speak your mind, thoughts below in comments...
