National Voters' Day Significance

In a democratic nation like India, the Voting system forms the backbone of the country. It is because of the Voting system, people can choose the leaders they want the country to be governed. Every citizen has the basic right to vote. He or she has the right to select his leader to whomever they think is capable of leading the nation, solve the problems of common people, bring about change, etc. Just think once, that if we do not come forward and choose the right leader then the progress and development of the country will be hampered and will also affect the people of the country. It is the leader of the country who decides various basic big projects and several things. If the basic system will not be developed properly it may lead to under construction of roads, electricity connection problems, etc. Hence, we should encourage youth to participate and build a strong network for the coming generation who will make sure to cast their votes without fail.
