New Delhi: Election commission is making all efforts to exhort voters to come to the polling stations to cast their vote. This year youth in Delhi will make a big impact and Delhi Election Commission understands this fact fully well. Aiming to boost voting percentage in the April 10 Lok Sabha polls here, the Commission on Friday roped in stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma and Bollywood singer KK to influence voters, especially youth, to exercise their franchise.
If you just eat pakodas on April 10, be ready to get stomach ache for next five years, warns comedian Kapil Sharma
Exhorting voters to come out of their homes and exercise their right on the polling day, Sharma said, “We need to celebrate elections as a national festival and should not treat the polling day as just another government holiday.
“It is not a day to just eat pakodas, but to exercise franchise for a better government. Otherwise this pakoda will give you stomach ache for the next five years,” Sharma said in his trademark style.
“The awareness regarding voting has increased in the recent years, which is a good sign for democracy. I think everyone should take their individual responsibility for a better future,” he added.
As a part of the awareness campaign, Delhi Election commission organised a cultural programme “Celebrate democracy with smile” at Talkatora Stadium, where Sharma and KK performed.
