Ahead of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 that begin on April 11, Government of India is urging the people of this country to vote. In a rather creative manner, the Twitter handle of Government of India have used Shah Rukh Khan's movie posters to spread the awareness.

'Karan Arjun', 'Swades' and 'Chak De India' posters are used to urge people to vote.
One poster says, 'Voting ka right hai tumhaare paas...
Shaayad tumhaare zindagi ka sabse khaas right..
Toh jao Vote karo!".

The other says, 'Yeh jo Vote hai tera,
Swades hai tera,
Tujhe hai pukara..' [sic]

Not just Shah Rukh Khan, they have also used Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal's movie taglines to spread the awareness.

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.
