Bengaluru: Civil society organisations and NGOs came together to spread awareness about electoral participation with 'Operation Satyashodhak' campaign. 

Members of the organisations went to houses and shops seeking people's opinion on infrastructure and other important issues. They discussed people's expectations as well.

Garment workers, street vendors, sexual minorities, advocates and others briefed people on the Centre's performance. They urged people to realise the achievements and failure of the government before casting their vote. 

The organisations said Centre had released only 24% of the funds allocated for Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao programme. The aid to health has been reduced with ICDS and National health Mission plans suffering fund cuts, they said. 

Support for education has gone down with 102 private universities coming up in the last five years while only three Central varsities were formed.
