Non-Resident Keralites (NRKs) coming home to cast votes

Kochi, May 12 (UITV)- After a special voter-registration drives and hectic campaigns in West Asia, Non-Resident Keralites (NRKs) are coming home in chartered planes to vote on May 16 in the state assembly election.

The Kerala Muslim Cultural Centre (KMCC), a feeder organization of the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), has arranged a chartered flight for the NRK voters to go home and exercise their franchise. One such flight carrying around 150 voters will land at Calicut International Airport on Saturday.

“We have arranged tickets for NRK voters on various flights at affordable rates after holding discussion with the Air India authorities,” said Anwar Naha, the KMCC Dubai chapter president. Naha said the voters have already started leaving for the state in small batches; however, the uncertain economic scenario in the gulf regions has affected the travel plans of many NRKs.

However, KMCC could not give the precise number of voters arriving from these countries. But KMCC was expecting more than 2,000 voters to come and vote in the crucial election.

The first such venture by KMCC was in 2011 after the government allowed voting rights to NRIs through an amendment to the Representation of the People Act, 2010.
