Comment(s) This is a testament to making the world’s largest election a success. On the documentary, Sunil Arora, Chief Election Commissioner of India, said, “Keeping voter convenience and simplicity at the helm of the electoral process is not only a challenging task logistically, but also an effective outreach programme to each voter. From first-time voters to 100-year-old voters, from the topmost political leaders to the ground level party workers, the makers have covered it all. They have also covered remote locations on the Indo-China border, highly sensitive areas of Chhattisgarh, densely populated areas of Uttar Pradesh and also the thick forests of Sunderbans to include the diverse population of the country. This mammoth exercise in logistics and planning involves implementing the model code of conduct, voter awareness activities, the largest peacetime deployment of security forces and managing mind boggling numbers which makes for a very captivating story that National Geographic is proud to bring to the world.”
The documentary will premiere on National Geographic soon. Advertising
