First time voter Vaishnavi Shriyal who is 19 years old came to vote at the Hanuman road polling booth along with her friends Anjali and Hemlata who are also voting for the first time.
Vaishnavi says "voting is our right," adding that one has to "fulfill their duty."
Vaishnavi further says that one cannot complain if they don't cast their votes. If we don't vote then we can't later on say that the government didn't do any work. We have to vote and do our work only then will the government do their work."
When asked about who she hopes will win, she says, after some thought, "I hope the BJP".
On the Aam Admi Party, Vaishnavi seemed a little , "when they come to power only then we will get to see what they are like."
Her biggest concern, however, was the grim employment scenario in the country. "The hope is that the next government will bring in employment. In the future we all have to work, even though right now I'm in college. Once there are more jobs it will be better for everyone."
