Social activist Anjali Bhardwaj, along with 18 other prominent figures, including economist Jayati Ghosh, social activist Shabnam Hashmi, and lawyer Prashant Bhushan, has penned a letter to the Election Commission of India.

Bhardwaj and her co-signatories urge the Election Commission to promptly publish the authenticated record of voter turnout, as documented in Part I of Form 17C, on its website. This call for transparency aims to ensure accountability and foster public trust in the electoral process.

As India navigates through the electoral landscape, demands for transparency and integrity in the democratic process gain significance. The appeal made by Bhardwaj and other eminent personalities underscores the importance of open access to vital electoral data, reinforcing the principles of democracy and citizen participation.
