Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu to Educate Young Voters
The comic book serves as a multifaceted tool, addressing various critical aspects of voter awareness.
An initiative based on Chacha Chaudhary comics has been launched by the Election Commission of India (ECI) to educate young voters.
A comic book titled “Chacha Chaudhary aur Chunavi Dangal” was launched on September 20 by the chief election commissioner (CEC) Rajiv Kumar and election commissioners Anup Chandra Pandey and Arun Goel at Nirvachan Sadan.
The comic book is a joint initiative of ECI and 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, Billoo brought to life by the renowned cartoonist late Pran Kumar Sharma.
On the occasion, CEC Rajiv Kumar said that comics as an outreach medium is relevant and irreplaceable, even in this age of digital media. 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.
According to ECI, 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.
In the comic, Chacha Chaudhary also plays a pivotal role in introducing readers to various apps developed by the Election Commission of India like cVigil and KYC, thereby empowering them to become an active and informed participant in the election process.
Furthermore, the comic book emphasizes the significance of women’s participation in the electoral process, aligning with ECI efforts to increase women’s participation.
This comic is available in both print and digital formats, ensuring accessibility across all platforms. Additionally, to inspire young minds, free copies of the comic book will be distributed to schools, educating future voters about the elections.
Nikhil Pran, director and publisher of Pran Comics, and senior officials of the Commission were also present on the occasion.
