Network18 take up this initiative for encouraging voters to exercise their right in general elections. This initiative was executed with an idea of #ButtonDabaoDeshBanao
We ourselves create a lot of obstacles in forming our government by not casting vote as it may be because of the age, social, race and economic class.
Young generation are often or too busy and have little stake for elections.
People are showing apathy towards elections as they find no difference by changing government. Hence, they seem alienated when it comes for voting.
The sole purpose was to encourage the young, first time voters and to the people who don’t cast their vote as a right. Our mission was to persuade such voters to cast their vote and utilize their right.
