Petition

To

Smt. Pratibha Devi Singh Patil
The Honorable President of India,
Rashtrapati Bhavan
New Delhi - 110 004

Respected Madam,

Sub:
        Submission to honor the Adult franchise of Non-Resident Indians, Overseas citizens of India and Persons of Indian Origin.

On behalf of all expatriates, we congratulate you for being the first woman president of India and appreciate your esteemed office services concerning NRIs across the world.

As a democratic nation with loftier ideals enshrined in the Constitution to secure justice and equality in representation and participation, we bring to your kind notice the inability of the ‘SONS OF SOIL’ staying abroad to exercise their franchise due to below mentioned reasons.

  • The physical presence of NRI’s, is not possible during the time of elections.
  • Exclusion of their names in Electoral rolls.
  • Absence of Postal Ballot System.

As the preamble and Supreme Court have explicitly made it clear that, the basic tenets of Indian Constitution are ‘SOVEREIGN, SOCIALIST, SECULAR, DEMOCRATIC, REPUBLIC’, Ensuring justice, liberty, equality and fraternity, which ensures and mandates every citizen to participate in the electoral process. Irrespective of our geographical presence, we all have the right and urge to be part of the democracy. The emotional tie up to the homeland coupled with striving for the betterment of the self and the motherland by contributing generously to the welfare of larger Indian society should not deprive us of our basic rights. To safeguard our fundamental right and allowing us to participate in the democratic process, we request your august office to come up with required political directions to the concerned authorities with the mandated legislations involved in the nimbus. Also, please direct the Election Commission of India to privilege the fundamental right of Voting through the Postal Ballot System.

Thanking you,

Sincerely.

Note: Please provide genuine information as this will be forwarded to
      the Honorable President of India.
