An encouraging number of youngsters exercised their democratic rights and participated in the MCD (Municipal corporation of Delhi) elections. Many of them cast their votes during the morning hours at the Dwarka sector 7 polling booth.
In a conversation with CitySpidey, youth shared their expectations from the MCD and the importance of voting from their end.
Bunty Kumar, 25, a resident of sector 7 says, "Leaders become reluctant once they get the power, this time my agenda is to give chance to a different face so that some work is done in our ward."
Dristi Agarwal, 22, an engineer by profession, and a resident of sector 7, Dwarka came with her parents to cast her vote. She says, "Everyone should vote as a responsible citizen. This time I want female counsellors to pave the way for development and set a positive example."
A very common problem which each and everyone talked about was the cleanliness and development of the area which they find is very slow or on a pause button.
Ankita Jain, 31, a German language specialist from sector 7 says, "I don't cast my vote according to the party but the candidate. This time also I have done the same and utilized my voting powers. I hope the sub-city will be cleaner in the coming time."
Corruption is one of the major problems in India. Youth is aware of the problem and they are trying to find a solution by casting their vote for the candidate whom they believe would do sincere work.
Pankaj, 26, a businessman from Palam says, "I want my counsellor to be honest and who can work towards development and cleanliness instead of just talking about it. I have cast my vote and fulfilled my responsibility. Now it's their turn to pay us back with good work"
