Everybody is talking about how the four day holiday from April 30 will have a deep impact on the percentage of voting on the D Day. But Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik believes that the responsible institutes and persons are trying to ensure otherwise and has appealed to the masses to exercise their right to vote for the deserving candidate. Everyone is talking about the change ushered in by Barack Obama in the US. But, is a similar change possible in India? This seems difficult, as a large part of the population either does not have voting cards or chooses not to vote. Hence, it is unfair to expect change. If we demand change, we should try and work towards it. With the general elections fast approaching, this is one chance for the common man to be vigilant by exercising the right to vote. There are justified fears from concerned sections that on April 30, many voters would opt to leave the city for a four day long weekend not bothering to cast their vote. This will have an impact on the voting percentage as well give a chance for bogus voting. However, Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik has an optimistic approach to the concern. Giving an example he said that some educational institutes in Thane have decided to declare results on April 30th in the evening to ensure that parents stay back and hence, it would somewhere contribute to the voting percentage. The leader also appealed to the masses to vote and vote for the deserving candidate. NMTV News appeals to all voters to be vigilant and vote else electing the right candidate will not be possible. If you vote, you get the government you deserve. If you do not vote, you still get the government you deserve. Please vote to empower; to participate and to bring in change. Rather than complaining later, every citizen must come out and vote. It is our right as well as duty.
