The general elections in India are just around the corner. The elections this time collide with the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the BCCI is also wanting to host the tournament at home. This is an important election with a huge number of people set out to be first time voters. Thus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to spread awareness amongst the people through sportsmen who enjoy tremendous following.
The honourable Prime Minister had a special request for cricketers MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He tweeted to this trio to inspire the 130 crore people of India to go and set a record of the highest voter turnout in the upcoming election.
“Dear @msdhoni, @imVkohli and @ImRo45, You are always setting outstanding records on the cricketing field but this time, do inspire the 130 crore people of India to set a new record of high voter turnout in the upcoming elections. When this happens, democracy will be the winner,” Narendra Modi tweeted.
