The aim is to engage most participation of such voters this time in the city,” said Vinay Jaiswal District President Saksham.

The youth bring them to booths help them vote and then clicked a selfie with them gives a loads of respect to the senior citizens. We also try to see our future as somehow we also reaches the stage and don’t want such phase in our lives,” said Jaiswal.
