‘Free A Billion’, a group of citizen, had started campaign to aware voters in Mumbai since last six months. Volunteers of the citizen group visited few places in the city such as housing societies, colleges and slum pockets, where voting percentage are comparatively less.
“We wanted to make people aware about civic issues they are facing. So that they vote for NOTA as a mark of protest against BMC’s failure,” it said.
Suchita Deshpande, group manager of ‘Free A Billion’, said, “We are happy that people have used NOTA and it would help to make a systematic change in the BMC functioning.”
