Be it first time voters or the relatively senior people, many were seen walking with their mothers to the polling stations.
Padam Jain, a resident of Sector 13, went to cast his vote taking his 94 years old mother to the booth at MRV School at Sector 13. He said that voting with mother was a really wonderful experience.
After casting his vote, he shared a photograph with his mother on different social media platforms. He said, “I shared the photograph to inspire people to go for vote with their mothers. I am happy that I did it today.” Many people were also seen taking entire family to the polling booths. It was a common sight at the polling stations.
Vishal Gupta, the treasurer of Lovely Home Apartments, Sector 5, went to vote with his mother and wife. He too shared a selfie. He said, “My mother was not in best of health today, yet, I took her for voting. I am very happy that I did it for her and the Mother India.”
