Ludhiana, May 4
The students of Spring Dale Senior Secondary Public School, Sherpur, took out a rally to sensitise the masses about exercising their right to vote here today.
Carrying placards, the students took out a procession in Sherpur area and educated the residents about their right to vote.

The students said, “It is a matter of concern that despite the voting day being declared a holiday, many people do not cast their vote. An abstention from voting not only reflects on the ignorance of people towards their privilege of voting, but also their negligence to perform their duty as a citizen.”

They said people’s failure to cast vote might pave the way for bogus voting, which meant hampering the development process and progress of the country. They said voting was a right as well as a duty of every citizen.
