HT Media Group’s HIndi Daily Hindustan has announced special election coverage ‘Right Information’ .
‘The upcoming General Elections 2009 are important for reasons more than one. Not only has the voter base increased substantially this year- by almost 4.3Cr, (going up to 71.4Cr. versus 67.1Cr. in 2006) approximately 25% of this new voter base is also in the age group 18- 21 years; which means a lot of first timers from India’s youth brigade would be stepping out to vote. Also, thanks to the exposure to all kinds of media, the voters, old and young, are all charged up to exercise their franchise,” an HT Media release said.
In this scenario where the voters are inundated by the “Go out and Vote” messages and are eager to participate in the biggest Mela of the Indian democracy, Hindustan, through its in-depth and wide coverage on the General Elections is giving -what’s probably the only ammunition that one needs to participate in this big event; that ammunition being-Right Information.
This ‘right information’ is being brought to the readers through Hindustan’s special election coverage that includes – views of Experts who are keeping a close eye on the drama as it unfolds in the Hindi heartland and across India, state-wise analysis, reader viewpoints and minister report cards. In addition to this, Hindustan, through its association with some of the leading media brands like Google, Aaj tak and IBN 7 is giving its readers more avenues to seek in-depth information on their future leaders because we at Hindustan believe that not just voting but ‘Informed Voting’ will bring the change that India deserves.
