    Hyderabad: The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Vikas Raj, has urged voters in Telangana not to let the summer heat be an excuse for not voting, as the Election Commission of India (ECI) is making all necessary arrangements.

    Inaugurating a 3-day photo exhibition on Voters’ Awareness at MGBS, along with V C Sajjanar, MD TSRTC, Vikas Raj informed voters that they can find their polling booths through the ECI portal and mobile apps. He also reminded voters that they can visit their polling booth with their EPIC or any of the 12 identification cards recognized by the ECI to cast their vote. The ECI has been conducting awareness campaigns for the past seven to eight months.

    The Photo Exhibition features 32 information panels developed by CBC that showcase India’s election journey since 1951 and highlight various aspects of polling, from ECI’s mobile apps to EVMs. The CEO commended CBC for setting up the exhibition at MGBS, which supports the SVEEP (Systematic Voters Education and Electoral Participation) efforts. He encouraged voters to participate in the democratic process to ensure free and fair elections.

    Sajjanar, addressing the gathering, encouraged first-time voters and youngsters to vote on polling day, making good use of the holiday declared for that purpose. He emphasized that voters should not be swayed by freebies or inducements. Shruti Patil, Additional DG, PIB & CBC, Hyderabad, spoke about initiatives of the Ministry of I&B in collaboration with the Office of CEO, Telangana, such as street plays staged across the state to engage voters. CBC plans to hold similar exhibitions in major towns to combat urban voter apathy. The play ‘Votey Mana Ayudham’ (Vote Is Our Weapon) presented during the inaugural program encouraged first-time and young voters to exercise their franchise.
