Honda Activa launches a one of its kind, #ActivIndia campaign during the election season to encourage more and more people to cast their votes to make a difference. It prompts the citizens to realize that they are the ones who can give the “desh chalane ka license” - the license to run the country.
Patna, once called Pataliputra had served as the capital for some of the most powerful Northern rulers including the Mauryas. However, today the state of Bihar suffers from a crippling lack of education and awareness. Pradip Bhandari reached the Patna College campus where he asked the youth of this historical city about what they think should be the issues taken up in the recent elections and what do they see before voting for a candidate.
The youth of Patna believes that there is a major lack of awareness in the people of Bihar, especially in the rural areas that are a majority. However, the situation can be changed if there are initiatives taken to spread awareness about elections and the importance of voting. It is very important that the people in the largest democracy of the world know and realize its true meaning – that it is a government formed by them, hence, every individual is as powerful as the political leaders.
There is a large part of the population in the state that casts their votes based on the caste and religion of the candidate. Issues like casteism, religionism should be addressed immediately to avoid conflicts. The students believe that the issues that should be focused on are rural development, security, especially women’s security and education.
India is an agriculture-based economy and Bihar significantly depends on agriculture. The government should take more initiatives for the farmers and the people whose lives depend on agriculture.
Honda #ActivIndia is an initiative to spread awareness about the right and responsibility to vote in all parts of the country. It is a call to every young individual out there to realize how important each vote is and urges them to contribute to the reshaping of the nation’s government.
#ActivIndia - Proactive Citizens make a Progressive Nation
Watch to know more about the issues that the youth deems urgent and important.
