Let's Vote - It's Our Responsibility

Election Commission of India has still to come out with a tentative date for conducting the General Elections to the lower house (Lok Sabha) of the parliament. But, they most probably would be held before May 2009.

If we observe the voting percentage in the recently conducted New Delhi State Assembly elections was well below when compared to the voting percentage in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. That made me think why urban voters are turning away from elections. Is it because they are not interested in the election process at all or lack of trust on the politicians or they are very happy with the facilities they have when compared to their counterparts living in villages.

Whatever reason that might be, it is not a valid one. In a democracy like ours, the Right to Vote is something that needs to be taken very seriously if not we will be forced to see days like Emergency or Military takeover's where we have to just dream for our basic rights.

Right to Vote should be called as Responsibility to Vote. If we are not voting means we are running away from our responsibilities.

I understand that politics is not a good place to be in. But if everyone runs away from it, it would be run only by bad people. India needs good politicians - very good ones who can guide this great country into the uncertain future. We can let this country led by cheap politicians. India needs politicians like You and Me !!

So....before that, let's show our responsibility towards this country and VOTE in the coming elections to the candidate we like!!
