Voting is considered the biggest festival of democracy. The pace of voting in Maharashtra is looking a little sluggish. But the enthusiasm and passion of the elderly voters is becoming visible on this biggest festival.
Many such pictures have come out from Mumbai. When the conscious voters from 90 to 100 years came to cast their votes, then everyone’s eyes were fixed. Union Minister Smriti Irani has also described one such voter as today’s hero. Let us know that the voting is going on for 288 seats in the state amid tight security.
Even at the age of 100, the player Ram Sharma has set an example of passion and dedication towards democracy. The special thing is that despite being so old, he reached the polling station on his own without any help. The player Ram Sharma exercised his franchise at the polling booth located at Pawar Public School in Bhandup East assembly constituency.
This 100-year-old dedicated voter neither resorted to veal chair nor looked for anyone’s shoulder to reach the polling booth. He reached the polling booth with the help of a stick and looked quite happy after voting.
Elders people are taking more participation than youngers in Election
Union Minister Smriti Irani praised a 93-year-old veteran voter after casting his vote at a booth in Mumbai. He posed with the man, showing a blue mark of voting. Smriti said in a conversation with the media outside the polling booth, ‘Today’s hero is Khannaji. He served in the army. He is 93 years old and has come to cast his vote.
This gives us inspiration. If he can vote at the age of 93, then who is stopping you? ‘
