"I VOTE NOBODY" -- is also possible as per constitution

Section 49-O of the Constitution of INDIA.

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969
act, in section "49-O" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm
his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election
officer that he doesn't want to vote anyone!

Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious
leaders have never disclosed it. This is called "49-O".

Why should you go and say "I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a
candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has
received "49-O" votes more than 123, then that polling will be cancelled
and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the
contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since
people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring fear
into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for
election. This would change the way, of our whole political system... it is
seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a
feature to the public....

Please spread this news to as many as you know... Seems to be a wonderful
weapon against corrupt parties in India... show your power, expressing your
desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so
don't miss your chance.

So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O)
