1 Whitefield Rising voting guidance
What is Whitefield Rising’s guidance on WHO to Vote for?
Party NOT a good criteria when voting for MLA. That’s for Lok Sabha. MLA abilities are much more important for local issues to be resolved. If you have a poor candidate from your favorite party, well you will be left with a poor state of affairs. A good candidate can do a lot with or without any party support as the role of MLA is well empowered.
Review each candidate carefully. But if none satisfy your need, you may vote NOTA with the recognition that it registers your protest and people will know what they missed by not putting a good candidate forward.
Even if 90% of the votes are NOTA, it will NOT trigger a Re-Election. The winner amongst the 10% wins. This is a flaw with the current NOTA. If there are many NOTAs, the next elections for Corporator that are right around the corner will see much better candidates !
AND the existing elected reps will also sit up and pull up their socks.. If WE show turnout. Therefore, most importantly get ALL your communities and neighbors to come out and VOTE in large numbers on MAY 12th.

4.10 Closing statements
Sharing the short videos of the closing statements of the candidates on their strategy for the future from event at Radisson Blu.
Mr. Bhaskar Prasad –
Translation from Kannada: Mahadevapura has been reduced to such a state that you have to fight for survival here. You don’t have a dignified life here. Problems are as simple as mosquito menace. Mahadevapura has not got its due attention from the incumbent MLA for the past 10 years and the issues of Mahadevapura have gone up by 20 times. If I am elected I will give a such a governance in such a way that you will give me a list of suggestions rather that list of problems/issues.
Mr. Arvind Limbavali –
Mr. AC Srinivas –
Translation from Kannada: Mahadevapura has grown in terms of IT/BT and apartments, but there is no proportionate development of basic facilities. So in future if elected, will work speedily to provide roads, water, development of lakes, upgrade government schools, hakkupathras for the poor, sites, gardens and parks, footpath proportionate to the population of the constituency. Providing better basic facilities is my main aim and intend to make Mahadevapura a model constituency. This will not be a simple task to handle, I will take this as a challenge, considering your opinion and support from the government.
Mr. Ramesh Chander –
Mr. Satish K –
Translation from Kannada: The environment in Mahadevapura is totally commercialised and its the money and muscle power that is working. Mahadevapura has not made any progress in the last 10 years. If elected will work unbiased across party lines for the development. Having big companies and apartment complexes do not indicate progress. It is important that the elected representative utilises the resources and governs in an effective way. Having presented your issues, first the elected representative should realise that we are not public leaders but public servants. Mahadevapura is the most backward in terms of development among all 224 constituencies. Only sloganeering will not help, we must work together without any language or state differentiation to bring in a change.
