GHMC-made special vehicles for voters flagged off

Hyderabad: GHMC Commissioner M. Dana Kishore on Wednesday said they had designed special vehicles to create awareness among the voters of the city thereby increase the poll percentage. Dana Kishore flagged off the vehicles in the presence of officials of the civic body.

Speaking on the occasion, the Commissioner said they had designed the vehicles in such a way that even handicapped and disabled people could also easily get into the vehicle and get answers to their questions. The Commissioner himself observed the facilities set up in the vehicles personally. He also observed the performance of VVPATs in the machines. He said the initiative was taken to increase the poll percentage in the city which registered very low voter turnout during the last year’s Assembly elections.
