The upcoming BMC elections have everyone talking. Even the who’s who of the television industry have been intrigued by this essential election. Here’s what they have to say:
Ramman Handa – Indeed I will use the right to Vote. I always make sure that whenever elections are on I cast my vote as I believe that even one vote can make a difference. It’s a responsibility of every citizen to choose the government if we want to change the system. It’s easy to crib about the faults in our system but when we have the chance to rectify them then why to loose it.
Amal Sehrawat – Definitely yes, I will vote. In the 3rd year of my college, I did a proper research on agendas of all parties, checked the track record of all candidates, and was the first person to vote in the booth (I reached early out of excitement). It’s sad people take the voting day as holiday and shopping day. Jaago Nagrik Jaago.
Abhaas Mehta – Unfortunately, I cannot vote for the bmc elections as I have recently shifted to Thane, which falls outside the jurisdiction of bmc. I am waiting for my documents to get ready through which I can apply for a voting card for Thane. Doubtful it’ll happen before these elections. My first voting was in 2014 for the Centre elections, I went there with my mother. We both voted for opposing parties. I really felt good as the process was very easy and not time taking at all, contrary to what the basic perception is. I can’t stress enough on how important it is to vote. We all want to somehow contribute to the well-being of our country. What’s better than choosing the leaders who will guide us in that direction. Voting also reminds us of our fundamental principles that we are a democracy, healthy or not, depends on how many of us vote.
Karan Singh Chhabra – No I won’t be able to vote this 21st February because I am still waiting for my voters’ card. I have my Punjab’s voters’ card, and the elections are already done there. So I am waiting for my documents here, and next time I will definitely vote, The first time when I voted was when I was of that legal age, I remember the ink on my finger. I was feeling very responsible, and it was not like I voted anyone random, I had done proper research, I used to see other media sources, ask my parents and friends. Voting is definitely an important thing because change starts right from here. If you don’t go to vote, you have no right to crib about the problems. If you vote for a leader, and you don’t like his work than you can decide on voting someone else next time. So yes, change starts here.
