A negligent and lethargic attitude about casting one’s vote, despite having the capacity and facility to do so, in principle not only weakens the democracy but in practice also paves the way for unhealthy elements getting into the polity which in turn is detrimental to the health of democracy. Voters should also bear in mind that they not only form the government by casting their vote but also indirectly pave the way for someone to form the government by not exercising their franchise.
The entire nation is looking at us to find answers to these challenges. If the BJP fails to respond to these challenges, then rest assured, no other political party will have a solution for them. If by galvanizing our organizational powers we are successful in this election, respond to all these challenges and take the country out of these crises, then we will be considered as architects of history in the years to come.
