New Delhi [India], September 20 (ANI): A comic book titled ‘Chacha Chaudhary aur Chunavi Dangal’ was launched by Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar here on Wednesday to convey election-related information creatively and encourage children and teenagers to participate in future elections actively.
Election Commissioner Anup Chandra Pandey and Arun Goel were also with the CEC during the launch of the comic book at the Nirvachan Sadan here.
The comic book is a joint initiative of ECI & Pran Comics designed to inspire the youth to enroll and participate in the festival of democracy. It features the iconic cartoon characters Chacha Chaudhary, Sabu, and Billoo brought to life by the renowned Cartoonist late Shri Pran Kumar Sharma.
Launching the comic book, CEC Rajiv Kumar said that comics as an outreach medium are relevant and irreplaceable, even in this age of digital media.
Recalling his childhood memories, the Chief Election Commissioner added that these comic characters, with their universal appeal and emphasis on values like honesty, kindness and compassion, provide an engaging platform to convey election-related information creatively. With a significant following among children and teenagers, this medium enables the Election Commission to effectively engage with the youth, fostering a sense of informed and responsible citizenship from an early age. The comic will help kids to imagine the election process, and it will also help the older generation to revive their earlier days.
Election Commissioner Anup Chandra Pandey said “The comic book has attempted to present critical issues like ethical elections, participative democracy, muscle and money power in a very lucid and reader-friendly manner to impact children and adults alike,”
Election Commissioner Arun Goel also spoke on the launch of the comic book.
Goel said “The comic book has a positive and constructive message along with humour about the election process and it nudges the young and future voters for enhanced participation in the election process,”
This comic book serves as a multifaceted tool, addressing various critical aspects of voter awareness. Its primary focus is to encourage young eligible voters to register themselves, ensuring their active participation in forthcoming elections, he added.
In the comic, Chacha Chaudhary also plays a pivotal role in introducing readers to various apps like cVigil and KYC, developed by the Election Commission, thereby empowering them to become active and informed participants in the election process.
Furthermore, the comic book strongly emphasises the significance of women’s participation in the electoral process, aligning with ECI efforts to increase women’s participation. (ANI)
