National Dalit Election Watch
The Right of Franchise is a fundamental right and it is through the exercise of this right that any democracy is sustained and strengthened. Through National Dalit Election Watch (NDEW) we intend to uphold one of the most crucial dimensions of the political rights of Dalits; eliminate a primary obstacle to their political participation and assertion.
This initiative is expected to mobilize a large number of volunteers and eminent citizens across the country in defence of the right of franchise, leading to widespread political awareness among large sections of the Dalit population and society at large.

  Making an Impact

“There is an election going on all the time... the Lord votes for you and Satan votes against you, and you must cast the deciding vote.”

“Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.”

“Democracy is a device that insures we shall be governed no better than we deserve.”
