Delhi Government has asked private schools in the national capital to plan a visit for students to the Election Musuem so that they gain electoral knowledge.
The museum, christened ‘Journey Through Elections’, has been developed in the office premises of Chief Electoral Officer to create an environment and learning place to know about the country’s electoral legacy and management, and the views of Mahatma Gandhi on the democracy and election process.
“The centre has been envisaged to impart knowledge and education related with elections to citizens in general and students in particular which shall remain open from 11 AM to 4 PM on all working days.
“School children, especially, students of secondary and senior secondary classes who are aspiring voters in the near future will find it very useful,” a communication sent to schools by the Directorate of Education (DoE) said.
The schools have been asked to book a slot in advance through the Election Commission’s website. The directorate has also clarified that the exercise is voluntary.
