No. Instead permission should be granted to come late or leave early to cast vote. Declaring it as holiday serves little purpose as people love having holiday at home and shy away from standing in queues for polling. This is what even Kiran Bedi stated in TOI dated 11th May.

In fact, the entire VOTING-PROCESS should be stretched to a 6-day affair to ensure everybody to vote. An idiotic method of deleting the names for the transferred/temporarily absent voters ,are also to be dispensed with.
YOU must loose your citizenship if you do not vote consecutively for more than THRICE.

A lot of reforms are needed in the process of electioneering in our country to ensure 100% participation at almost zero cost.Like..online voting will eliminate need for holiday on voting day.Untill, such time only those who vote should be treated on holiday all else should be penalised ,n,marked absent !

Every urban citizen should be allowed to vote through e-mail. e-mail facilities must be given by the election commission through pan card no. voter must access the site of casting vote through pan card no and password known to him only.
