    How to get the bio-data of the candidates, their education, social work in the past, their wealth and criminal record (if any)?

    Thanks for a nice site.

  • I suppose you can get the info for all candidates from the Election Commission office but that will be a very difficult task. It would be easier to just get hold of the brochures of the various candidates. If the election literature doesn’t state the educational qualifications, the candidate in all probability would not be a graduate.

    Anyway most election material state the candidate phone numbers. So the easiest way to get candidate info is to call up the candidate concerned. Before the elections you should get a friendly response. 🙂
