About the campaign
Thanks to the foresight of independent India’s Constituent Assembly and the deep scholarship of Dr. Ambedkar, we are fortunate to have had a Constitution since inception that was far ahead of its times. Preserving our constitutional values at this critical juncture in our country’s history is widely recognised as essential for our success if not survival. Fortunately, every Indian voter has the opportunity to do exactly that in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
The very foundation of our nation, the right to choose who governs us, is also the soft underbelly of our democracy. Elections are meant to be the moment when Indians should be able to lay down their expectations to all political parties and candidates as they formulate their manifestos. Every Indian citizen should be able to have their names enrolled on the voter list, particularly the 133 million young people in India, who will be voting for the first time. Their understanding of their rights and responsibilities to participate in the governance of the country is central to India realising its potential in the coming years. This is even more so for young people from disadvantaged communities.
