All the participants delivered their thoughts and ideas about the importance of the voting right and emphasized on the need for participation of every Indian citizen who is eligible for this process. It enables the citizens to choose their own government and also allows the people to choose their representatives in the government. The purpose of every government is to develop and implement various policies for the benefit of its citizens. They asked that citizens should follow the progress of the political representatives and the legislature. This consistent process will enable the general population to settle on educated choices about whom to vote in favor of in the following term. Students also threw the light on the fact that how the election commission is working hard for enrolling each and single voter by providing appropriate support and awareness. A common point which was highlighted by each participant was that each voter should not cast their vote on the basis of money, cast, area, religion etc.
The event was summarized by the Prof. (Dr) S.S Agrawal. He stated that voting is the primary right of every citizen if a person does not exercise the right, then he/she is not doing their duty towards the country. He also thanked Prof. (Dr) Vikram Singh and his colleagues for conducting this event. He also appreciated the efforts of all the students and motivated others to participate in great numbers.
