Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has expressed concern over the low voter turnout in Sunday’s elections to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and has decided to order a survey to find out the reasons behind Bangaloreans not coming out in large numbers to vote .
The decision by Yeddyurappa comes in the backdrop of the outburst by political leaders, cutting across party lines, against “Bangaloreans indifference” to the polls .
The nature of the survey is not known and neither is it clear when it would be held, but the Chief Minister has said that it would be conducted by a private agency. “It is serious concern and we are worried about it (low voter turnout),” he said .
“I am surprised by the low turnout. Despite all the good work done by our government in the last two years, people have not come out to vote. This needs to be addressed,” the Chief Minister said .
“The survey would help us know the real reasons behind Bangaloreans not coming forward to vote,” he added .
