Asks youth to register their names in electoral rolls

Union Home Minister said that today is "National Voters Day" and that our country functions in a democratic system and its smallest unit is the voter of the country.

The Home Minister exhorted all youth above 18 years of age to register their names in the electoral rolls, become part of the democratic process, and strengthen democracy in India and Jammu and Kashmir.

He said that after Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, Panchayat elections were held in Jammu and Kashmir in 2018 in which 74 percent of voting took place, Block Development Councils (BDCs) elections were held in October 2019 in which 98 percent of voting was recorded and 3,650 Sarpanches were elected in 4483 constituencies.

"In this way, the Modi government has allowed 35,000 Panches, Sarpanches, and public representatives of local bodies to work in a democracy", he said, adding, "Now fresh delimitation is taking place here in which reservation arrangements are being made so that the deprived people will be able to get their rights".
