PM Modi urges citizens to “Create New Records Of Voting” as voting in Himachal begins

PM Modi greeted the young voters who will be casting their first vote today in the Himachal Pradesh election.


Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged Himachal Pradesh citizens to take part in the state’s election process. The Prime Minister also wished luck to the young people who would be casting their first votes today in a tweet.

“Today is the polling day for all the assembly seats in Himachal Pradesh. I request all the voters of Devbhoomi to participate with full enthusiasm in this festival of democracy and create a new record of voting,” tweeted PM Modi in Hindi.

“My special wishes to all the youth of the state who will be voting for the first time today,” he added.

Himachal Pradesh voters were urged by Union Home Minister Amit Shah to turn out in huge numbers in order to form a “strong government.”

“Only a strong and corruption-free government can fulfil the aspirations of the people of Devbhoomi by keeping Himachal Pradesh at the forefront of development. I appeal to the voters of Himachal, especially mothers, sisters and the youth, to elect a strong government by voting in maximum numbers for the golden future of the state,” said Mr Shah.

In Himachal Pradesh, more than 55 lakh voters will cast ballots today for the 68 assembly districts. On December 8, the results will be made public.

The BJP, which currently controls the state and hopes to regain power, maintains that “continuity” is essential for growth. The opposition Congress is counting on the four-decade-old custom of voting out incumbents in an effort to return to power.
