» Affidavits filed by candidates at the UP Election

PRESS RELEASE:

FAME - an organization committed to encourage democratic participation and deepening democracy has taken up the cause of increasing voter awareness and enabling voters to make an informed choice in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2012 by Collecting, Digitizing and Propagating the criminal, financial and educational information furnished by the candidates in their affidavits.

We express our gratitude to CEO Uttar Pradesh for coordinating with the Returning Officers of all the 75 districts and 403 Assembly Constituencies towards posting most of the candidates’ affidavits within 48 hours of nomination. FAME through its own back end facility has coordinated with the CEO Uttar Pradesh and facilitated in overcoming the time gaps , technical snags etc  in posting of affidavits at CEO UP website on a day to day basis.

This has helped FAME in digitizing all the filed and available affidavits in creating a Constituency Candidate Comparator of 403 ACs and about 6000 candidates which have been displayed at

www.fame-india.com

FAME is also thankful to the National and Regional, Print and Electronic media who have actively made use of this Constituency Candidate Comparators and shared this information with their and viewers to help them make informed choice on the basis of candidate’s background.

FAME also attempted to collect and publish through its website the Performance Card Members (MLAs) of Legislative Assembly of the Uttar Pradesh which assembled for only 96 days in their 5 years rule, on their attendance, number and quality of questions raised and the MLAs fund utilization. Unfortunately, our effort failed in absence of any support from the Assembly Secretariat in sharing information.

OBSERVATIONS

This has been our modest beginning but the findings of this exercise are quite disturbing in view of the quality of candidates which gets reflected through their own submissions filed in their affidavits. Our effort has inspired us to do this more actively in the forthcoming elections till we take this information to the last man and help them select the best candidate by exercising a fully informed voting franchise. A few of our observations are shared herewith to underline the importance of taking this information to the voter:
