myneta Know the politician you are going to vote for

Have you ever wanted to know the politician who is going to represent you in the parliament? or How educated is he? or Does he have a criminal record?

Is the person you are going to elect honest?

Now there is an answer to all your doubts. Association for Democratic Reforms has launched an initiative called MyNeta which lists all the affidavits submitted by all the candidates.

The portal lists everything about the candidate in a tabular form that you can use to make an informed choice about who to vote.

The portal also includes the list of all our elected representatives in the parliament and so you can know more about the people who promise to let your voice be heard in Delhi.

And not just that it also covers all the state assemblies and lists the state legislators too.

Also there is a  National helpline number (1-800-110-440) and a SMS facility (Send Myneta [PINCODE] to 56070)

This is a brilliant initiative to help voters make an informed decision. And certainly goes a long way in spreading the information about our netas.
