Around 53.6% of the citizens went to the polling booth to decide the fate of 88 candidates
In a conversation with the media personnel, Jamuni Devi highlighted the fact that she has been a regular voter and didn't want to miss her chance today. "I would appeal all voters to come and cast their votes," she said. Around 53.6% of the citizens went to the polling booth to decide the fate of 88 candidates, fielded across seven assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh bypolls. A senior official stated the fact that elderlies were among the first to vote and first-time voters also lined up in huge numbers to vote for their candidate.
Oldest among all voters, Jamuni Devi has set an example for all, across the state and beyond, by exercising her right to vote. This just proves that if there's a will, there's certainly a way and it's high time that citizens understood their responsibilities and duties towards the nation. Voting is a key step, in all of it.
