New Delhi, As phase second of Lok Sabha elections gets underway on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed the hope that people of various constituencies which are going to polls would exercise their franchise to strengthen democracy.
“Dear Citizens of India, Phase 2 of the Lok Sabha polls start today. I am sure all those whose seats are polling today will strengthen our democracy by exercising their franchise. I hope more youngsters head to the polling booths and vote!,” the Prime Minister said in a tweet.
On this occasion, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said people were voting for ‘NYAY'(justice).
