Who was Sukumar Sen, on whose life Siddharth Roy Kapur is going to make a film


After the independence of India, the first election of the country was held in the year 1951-52, at that time without using any modern technology, the process of the first election of the country was completed with great success under the leadership of India's first Chief Election Commissioner (Election Commissioner) Sukumar Sen. Now a biopic is going to be made on the life of Sukumar, the mastermind of the country's first general election. Siddharth Roy Kapur's 'Roy Kapur Films' has joined hands with Tricontainment Media and bought the rights to make a biopic on the life of Sukumar Sen.

Sukumar Sen's relatives also thanked 'Roy Kapur Films' on this special occasion. They said that they are happy that through Sukumar Sen's biopic, the story of one of the unsung heroes of the country will be brought to the people. This biopic will be released under the banner of 'Roy Kapur Films'.

Big responsibility without any experience

Sukumar Sen, who made a significant contribution to the administrative services of the country, was also a mathematics expert. After India gained independence from the British, he played an important role in making our country a democratic nation. Without any experience, Sukumar Sen created a permanent electoral system for our country, which no one would have even imagined.

The most difficult responsibility

After the country was declared a republic on 26 January 1950, Sukumar Sen was given the responsibility of completing the entire election system in just two years. This was the biggest challenge before him at that time. And this is why after successfully completing this challenge, Sukumar called it 'the biggest experiment of democracy in history'. It is said that no Indian official had to face such a big challenge before this. Election Commissioner Sukumar Sen surprised everyone with his work.

Know how Sukumar Sen worked

In the electoral process of the world's largest democracy, Sukumar Sen had to bring together the people of this country spread over three million square kilometers. Since our country of 175 million voters was spread across various areas of mountains, deserts and forests. At that time 85 percent of the population was illiterate and the voters were scattered in thousands of towns, villages and cities of 565 institutions and many new states, bringing all these people together was the most difficult task for Sukumar Sen.

2 million ballot boxes were used

At that time, there were about 500 seats for the Parliament and 4,500 seats for the rest of the assemblies. Even in a low budget, 2,24,000 polling stations were built under the guidance of Sukumar Sen and 2 million steel ballot boxes were placed in these centers. 8,200 tons of steel was used to make these boxes. And 16,500 clerks were appointed on a six-month contract to prepare the voters' list. 3,80,000 reams of paper were used to prepare this list, and 389,816 ink bottles were also used in this process. 56,000 officers were appointed for the election. Also, the help of 2,24,000 police was also taken. In the first election, 70 percent voting took place. This story of the first voting process will now be seen in a film.
