Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Vote Kar’ campaign has received vociferous support from celebrities from the film industry as the PM personally wrote to them on Twitter. Kartik Aaryan and Madhuri Dixit Nene were among the latest celebrities PM tagged to urge the citizens of the country to vote, and the duo obliged with full support.
PM had tagged the lead trio of the recent hit ‘Total Dhamaal’, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit Nene and requested them to encourage the citizens to create ‘Total Dhamaal’ at the polling booths too. PM Modi added that their support will augur well for India’s democracy and ensure high voter turnout.
The ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ star wrote that she stands for our democracy and requested that everyone exercises ‘their right to vote for our country's bright future in the upcoming elections.’
The Prime Minister had also tagged Sushant Singh Rajput, Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon to help increase voter awareness. Lauding them as the younger generation that is taking Indian cinema places, he wrote that ‘The power of youth will also strengthen our democracy.’
The ‘Luka Chuppi’ star first thanked the PM for the opportunity in Hindi. Kartik added that just like every drop of water makes the ocean, every vote constitutes the government. The actor urged his fans that they could play a part in the future of the country by voting without fail.
On March 14, PM Modi had similarly urged many other prominent personalities of various fields like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and many others, and they carried forward PM’s message of ‘Vote for India’ strongly to their fans and followers.
PM Narendra Modi reached out to prominent personalities from a wide spectrum of society soon after posting a blog in which he made “four requests for democracy”. This comes just two weeks ahead of the first phase of the Lok Sabha election.
In his blog, PM Modi said the election is an “occasion for celebration” while asserting that “not voting causes great anguish”.
“Would you want a situation where something happens in the country that you disapprove of and you are forced to think - because I did not go vote that day, this unfortunate situation has arisen and the nation is suffering,” reads PM Modi’s latest blog.
“Spare yourself from that regret and go vote,” advises the prime minister, who also said that by voting, people connect themselves with the country’s dreams and aspirations.
The “four requests”, as put out by PM Narendra Modi, are for the eligible voters to get themselves registered, make sure their names figure in the list of electoral rolls, plan their voting schedule to make sure they use franchise and to mobilise friends and families to vote in large numbers.
