'How can my vote make a difference?' Why you should never think this way!

How can we expect the government to be 100% committed to the country, if we don’t commit our 100% to cast a vote?

'How can my vote make a difference?' Why you should never think this way!

It’s the voting season! Huge fervour around the new government has taken over every nook and corner of our country. But amidst all the zeal and discussions, some might still find an excuse to keep away from going to the polling booths. To those we say, excuses were made in the 2014 General Assembly Elections too.

Only about 66% of 843 million eligible voters made their way to the polling booths to cast their vote. The 34% who did not vote, let others decide the future for them and the country.

The 2019 General Assembly Elections, with 900 million eligible voters, will be India’s biggest election in its constitutional history. The highest turn-out to date is expected. Instead of a mere 66%, we are expecting an insignificant rise in the total turn out, given the huge pool of the first time voters. But in the end, it’s still not good enough. How can we expect the government to be 100% committed to the country, if we don’t commit our 100% to cast a vote?

Don’t ever go by the thought that your lone vote cannot make a difference. Our unity is our diversity, and the key to a better future is our vote.

This initiative by Network 18 and HDFC Life wants to make sure that everyone in the country comes together and votes wisely for a brighter future; for others and for their own selves. #AajSawaaroApnaKal
