Nomination process

PP Pirate Praveen Public Seen by 269

We have been busy running around getting papers ready to file the nomination. Hoping to file it tomorrow.

  • We got a dedicated bank account on 20th with Federal Bank.
  • We collected nomination form on 23rd.
  • Then came the difficult part, my inclusion in electoral role has to be certified by Mannarkkad Tahsildar (my home constituency). My cousin Rahul went to Tahsildar on 23rd, but he had to get a copy of electoral roll. 24th was Sunday. 25th he got electoral role but my name was on the supplimentary roll and Tahsildar was on leave. 26th he got the sign from Tahsildar and we recived it today.
  • Hoping to get the affidavit ready today.
  • We have to get support from 10 voters from Thivuvananthapuram. Hoping to complete it by evening. Most people we know are in different constituencies and Sruthi's friend Darwin had agreed to sign, but he was not in town. We finally met him today morning.
  • I was also working with a CA to file income tax returns.
  • My colleague and good friend Rajesh Ranjan contributed 10000 to the campaign, which will help us cover the security deposit. Others also contributed, but because of transfer issues with (fcra) and (extremely confidential reason, they are refusing to provide) those funds are stuck.

It is like a jigsaw puzzle, hopefully all pieces are in place now.
