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,” read PM Modi’s latest blog.
