Nagpur; Leading News Service: The proportion of 18 and 19 year old youth in the total population of the state is 5.8 percent. But in the voter list, this ratio is only 0.68 percent. Chief Electoral Officer and Additional Chief Secretary Shrikant Deshpande today appealed to the new voters to register their duties and participate in the voting process and participate in the biggest celebration of democracy.
Mission Yuva campaign is being implemented to register at least 75 thousand new voters in Nagpur district under the Special Brief Revision Program. The campaign was inaugurated at the Divisional Sports Complex in Mankapur. On this occasion, Divisional Commissioner Vijayalakshmi Bidri, Chief Executive Officer Saumya Sharma, Additional Collector Asha Pathan, Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University Pro-Chancellor Dr. Sanjay Dudhe, Upazila Election Officer Praveen Mahire, Jyoti Amge along with representatives of disabled and third class, officials and employees of revenue system, principals of colleges, students were present on this occasion.
When the post-independence period of the country was seen, many challenges arose in the democracy. These challenges were successfully returned by the voters. This country has shown again and again that only the power of voters can save a true democracy. When the first elections were held in the post-independence period, many political pundits had predicted that India’s democracy would not last long and would collapse. However, Deshpande said on this occasion that even today our democracy is a model and vibrant for the world, it is a matter of pride for all.
Social responsibility, positive attitude and dedication towards work are real assets of youth. Enrolling as a voter and exercising the right to vote is part of social responsibility. Democracy requires people’s participation and inclusiveness for it to be real. The democratic system should be ours. It is necessary to believe that this organization and system can solve my problems. Inclusivity is the principle of democracy. In addition to mainstream voters, disadvantaged voters must also participate as voters in this process. Women, persons with disabilities, third parties must be involved in this process.
Democracy requires public participation. Democracy cannot survive without people’s participation. Election process is the core of democracy. It is said that our country is a country of youth. However, it is not reflected in the voting process. This is a contradiction. The youth who shape the future of this country are not visible in this process. Apathy about the voting process must be shaken. Everyone should try for this. This Mission Yuva is an important objective of this program.
Introductory Collector Dr. By Vipin Itankar. In Maharashtra, Nagpur district has experimented with this innovation and has decided to meet the target within the limits yesterday. The aim is to register at least 75 thousand voters in the district in the next three months. At the college level, two students will be appointed as youth ambassadors and 75 different election-related activities will be implemented on the occasion of the anniversary of Independence, the District Collector said.
