Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended the reach of his ‘Vote Kar’ campaign further by urging several celebrities to propagate the importance of voting ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. The personalities obliged with strong responses to PM while encouraging their fans and followers to vote. Kabir Bedi was also among the celebrities tagged by PM Modi on Sunday and the veteran actor, not just gave a thumbs up to the mission, but also replied that he wants to see Modi elected as PM again.
As a part of the initiative, the Prime Minister had praised the veteran artistes of the country, Anupam Kher, Kabir Bedi and Shekhar Kapur for making the country proud while requesting them to urge fellow Indians to vote in large numbers. He wrote, “The formidable @AnupamPKher, multifaceted @iKabirBedi and the widely acclaimed @shekharkapur have made India very proud at the world stage. My appeal to them- can you tell fellow Indians to vote in large numbers in the upcoming elections? #VoteKar.”
Kabir Bedi first thanked PM for personally reaching out to him. The actor added that he had supported Modi during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and this time too, wants to see him elected as the PM. The 'Khoon Bhari Maang' star continued that despite disagreeing on some issues, Modi is the best Prime Minister for India today by far.
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.
