Ludhiana, April 29, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

A total of 143 voters above the age of 100 years in district Ludhiana would be exercising their right to vote in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 elections. The District Administration is making special efforts to ensure that these 143 voters cast their vote in the elections.

Additional Deputy Commissioner (Jagraon)-cum-Nodal Officer SVEEP activities Mrs Neeru Katyal Gupta informed that three are 9 voters above 100 years of age in Khanna-57 constituency, 20 in Samrala-58 constituency, 10 in Sahnewal-59, two each in Ludhiana (East)-60 and Ludhiana (South)-61 constituencies, 6 in Atam Nagar-62, none in Ludhiana (Central)-63, 9 in Ludhiana (West)-64, 10 in Ludhiana (North)-65, 14 in Gill-66, 12 in Payal-67, 10 in Dakha-68, 16 in Raikot-69 and 23 voters in Jagraon-70 assembly constituency.

She stated that it is sometimes observed that aged voters are unable to cast their vote themselves, besides even their family members do not show any interest in taking them to the polling stations. She said that in Indian democracy, every single vote counts, and that is why the District Administration Ludhiana has decided to motivate these 143 voters to cast their vote, besides they would also be provided with all possible facilities.

Mrs Neeru Katyal Gupta said that Assistant Returning Officers or Nodal Officers of SVEEP activities have been asked to establish direct contact with these voters and motivate them in this regard. She said that even the family members of these voters would also be motivated.

She further said that for the benefit of these voters, the District Administration has decided to keep a wheel chair at all polling stations and that is why, each village has been directed to purchase two wheel chairs each as well. She informed that the proposal to depute special volunteers for the benefit of these voters at each polling station has also been finalised. She informed that special appreciation letters would also be distributed amongst these voters, NRI voters, differently abled and first time voters by the District Administration.

Additional Deputy Commissioner (Jagraon)-cum-Nodal Officer SVEEP activities Mrs Neeru Katyal Gupta urged the elderly voters to cast their vote on May 19, 2019 so that they also contribute in strengthening our democracy.
