New York, Apr 22, 2019: Save Indian Democracy, an Organization based in USA that played instrumental role in India getting VVPAT EVMs in 2010 is being approached by Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) who are not citizens of India to help with getting a formal procedure to contest in India’s Lok Sabha Elections from Election Commission of India. PIOs from United States, UK, Australia, Singapore have expressed deep interest in contesting in India’s Lok Sabha elections.

While it was earlier thought that in order to contest in India’s election a candidate needed to be an Indian Citizen, it is now being understood that either there can be exceptions made or the law is not necessarily followed. For example, the news media is reporting that Mr. Rahul Gandhi, the Congress candidate from two constituencies is known to have two Indian passports under different names as well as a British Passport and an Italian Passport. Similarly, Priyanka Gandhi who is known to be Italian Citizen is planning to contest in one of the UP constituencies.

PIO’s have strong bonds to India and want to take time away from their regular employment for a few years and contribute to India’s development. Save Indian Democracy is proud to facilitate for PIOs worldwide to contribute to vibrant India’s democracy by contesting in India’s elections and provide their talents for India’s development when elected.

  1. Some of them should have filed nominations just like Rahul and could have tested the policy instead of writting wasting their time

  2. Persons of Indian Origin “DESERVE” opportunities at the backdrop of contributing US$ filling Foreign exchange reserves in India.

    What is the contribution of RG,SG,PV except holding multiple passports and without doing anything their networth is astronomical in foreign vaults and in the country ? In fact taxpayers are overburdened with extra expenses on protecting the rogue family since independence. PM Modi government do not show much interest in sending them to jail.
