Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reached out to several celebrities across domains urging them to encourage the voters of India to come out and execute their rights. In a series of Tweets, he addressed several A-listers from the sports and entertainment industry asking them to create voter awareness.
On Sunday, March 24, he took to Twitter and addressed a message to Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and R. Madhavan asking them to join the initiative and influence the young voters. In a post, he wrote, "Dear @iHrithik and @ActorMadhavan, Your work has stood out not only for the entertainment quotient but also for the passion and hard work behind it. As widely respected voices, if you lend your voice towards increasing voter awareness, it strengthens India's democracy. #VoteKar"
Here's the post:
PM Narendra Modi had taken up the initiative weeks back as he tagged actors like Vicky Kaushal, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan in his posts which he shared with the hashtag--'Vote For India'. Now, the country chief resumed the campaign in the micro-blogging site with the hashtag--'Vote Kar'. He had also shared 'Four requests for Democracy' wherein he appealed to the eligible young voters to register for voting and encouraged people to spread awareness about the importance of voting in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
This comes barely four weeks ahead of the first phase of the Lok Sabha election, scheduled on April 11. The Election Commission on Sunday announced the dates of General Elections 2019. The nation will go into polls in seven phases beginning from April 11 till May 19. The counting of votes for all the states is scheduled to take place on May 23.
