Matdaata Mahotsav to be organized in Delhi by EC


New Delhi: The Election Commission will organise a ‘Matdaata Mahotsav’ during January 14-17 at Central Park in the national capital, ahead of the 6th National Voters’ Day on January 25.

The event will be inaugurated by Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi.

“The event will focus on involving voters and citizens from all walks of life, specifically women, youth, defence personnel, non-resident Indians, persons with disabilities, and those from marginalised sections for enhanced sense of inclusion, greater awareness about the electoral process and strengthening Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation programme (SVEEP),” a release said.

“The voters’ fest will host a national exhibition displaying the good practices on various aspects of election management and also describe the process of elections through interactive models, presentations and exhibits from different parts of the country,” it added.

The Mahotsav would encourage ideas and suggestions for greater and qualitative participation in elections.

This event is being organised with support from partner NGOs, ministries and departments, as well as media partners for greater outreach. (IANS)
