Lucknow, April 18: Samajwadi Party supremo and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday urged voters to exercise their right to strengthen democracy in the Lok Sabha Elections.
“Use your franchise in the second phase of voting. In democracy, voting not only determines the direction for next five years but for decades. For a strong democracy one must vote,” Yadav tweeted in Hindi.
Voting in eight Lok Sabha seats — Bulandshahr, Aligarh, Hathras, Fatehpur Sikri, Nagina, Amroha, Mathura, Agra– are underway in Uttar Pradesh.
The 2019 Lok Sabha contest is taking place in seven phases across the country.
