NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended greetings on the 13th National Voters' Day on Wednesday.
In his tweet, PM Modi urged citizens to seek inspiration from this year's theme and work together to strengthen democracy. "Greetings on National Voters' Day. Inspired by this year's theme of 'Nothing Like Voting, I Vote For Sure', may we all work together to further strengthen active participation in elections and strengthen our democracy. I also laud ECI for their efforts in this area. @ECISVEEP," PM Modi's tweet read.
Since 2011, National Voters' Day has been celebrated on January 25 every year, all across the country to mark the foundation day of the Election Commission of India, i.e. January 25, 1950.
The main purpose of the NVD celebration is to create electoral awareness amongst citizens and encourage them to participate in the electoral process. Dedicated to the voters of the country, National Voters' Day is also used to facilitate the enrolment of voters, especially the newly eligible young voters. New voters are felicitated and handed over their Elector Photo Identity Card (EPIC) in the NVD functions held across the country. NVD is celebrated at the national, state, district, constituency and polling booth levels, which makes it one of the largest celebrations in the country. ANI
