As Mizoram joined the nation in observing the National Voters’ Day on Monday, Mizoram chief secretary Lalnunmawia Chuaungo called on all voters to exercise their franchise to be a part of the nation-building process, reminding the citizens that every vote counts.
"Unlike other countries where universal adult franchise was a long struggle, the Constitution of India guaranteed citizens the right to vote as soon as the country became a republic. This is a hallmark of Indian democracy," the chief secretary said.
The National Voters’ Day function organised at the SAD Conference Hall, MINECO in Aizawl.
The chief secretary handed over EPICs to 10 newly enrolled young voters to mark the observation of NVD 2021.
