‘Ghajini’ wall graffiti to motivate voters

Punjab Poll 2022: Hoardings say it all

If the parties are using hoardings, the district election officers, too, have plans to organise its Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP) activities to motivate voters, especially the younger lot. For this, the district administration has come up with an initiative kind of graffiti to inspire voters to vote. Pillars under the BMC flyover were on Monday painted with the message to cast vote on February 20. The paintings have featured Bollywood star and EC brand ambassador Aamir Khan as seen in his film ‘Ghajini’ in which he was shown as a forgetful person. The painting tells everyone not to be forgetful and remember to cast the vote. Is vaar vote pauni nahin bhulanga is the message written in Punjabi.

The other slogans would highlight ‘No note for vote’, ‘Vote for a better India’, ‘Your vote your voice’, etc.
