The fate of the windmill seems to be haunting the Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA). Now it is the online polling system. The system announced by the GCDA for the public to mark their vote on allocating its stadium for the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA), has failed to respond.

Just a day after it announced online polling, the website to mark the vote by the public conked out. The website ‘www.gcdaonline.com’ has been down since Wednesday morning, making it impossible for the public to cast their votes. The Facebook link provided is also dead. The Twitter id given by the authorities ‘gcdakerala’, however, does not exist.

According to GCDA Chairman N Venugopal, the website was down because of the over-flooding of netizens to cast their vote. “We learnt that there was huge rush for casting votes. The website was unable to handle it and crashed. We will work on it,” he said.

When contacted, the technical team of GCDA said that they were working on the website and assured that the problem would be rectified within two days. However, when asked about the Twitter id, they did not have any particulars about it.

The stadium of the GCDA was given on lease to the KCA for the past five years. The KCA had requested the GCDA to lease the stadium to them for another 30 years to promote Test cricket in Kochi, a request that would hinder football matches from being held at the venue. The Authorities had sought public opinion and asked people to vote for their preference online in this regard.
