Referendum - 15 days to go
of our constitution-making
process. At first the people were eager to participate, that
is when the process started. Then the people felt cheated after
the political bickering which were not necessary given that the
people had spoken. Now the campaign for Yes/No has seen poor turnouts
at rallies, a clear sign people are fatigued. The tragic part is
people may vote for what they have not read. This will remove the
sense of owner-ship. The situation can be saved by involving the
people by tailor making the outreach programmes to specific needs.
Why not translate the document to all the recognized languages?
And why not go on a blitz to make the contents known and not how
people should vote?
