Ahead of the state assembly elections which are scheduled on Monday, several RWAs in New Gurugram have appealed the residents to exercise their right to vote.
This came after many residents of the housing societies in New Gurugram sectors called for boycotting elections over lack of development and apathetic attitude towards their problem.
Many RWAs from sectors 79 to 110 have come together to initiate the campaign so that the residents of the high rises participate in the democratic process of electing their representative.
They are holding meetings and circulating messages through social media to urge residents to vote.
Praveen Malik, President of Sare Homes said, “Election is the biggest festival of democracy and as a responsible citizen, we must cast our vote. Few people had spread the rumour about boycotting or pressing NOTA in this election but it will give nothing. It is rather the waste of opportunity to elect a leader who will represent our concern and resolve it. We are raising awareness among the people to excise their right and vote.”
Many residents took to Twitter and other social media platforms to urge the people to exercise their franchise.
Avnish Dahiya, Vice president of Antriksh Heights said, “Voting is one of the most important responsibilities as the citizen of the country. It gives us power to elect our leader who understand our issues and resolve it. We have no right to complain if we don’t fulfil our responsibility as a citizen. We are trying for bigger voter turnout.”
Urging the people to cast their votes, Ajay Nain, Executive Member of New Town Heights said, “Election is the opportunity that we get once in five years. So we must vote wisely. We are urging people not to take the voting day as another holiday in the year but vote. Every vote matter and everything depends on it.”
