We have the Right to Vote!!!

Orientation Program on the Right to Vote at St. Xavier’s College, Digha

An awareness programme to convince the youth to cast their vote was held at St. Xavier’s College, Patna. The Deputy Election Officer Mr. Baiju Sing and Assistant Election Officer Mr. Kamal Nayan were the speakers for the day. The programme started with a PowerPoint presentation convincing the youth to take pride in being the citizens of India and to cast their vote if they wanted a better, cleaner and greener India. Mr. Baiju Singh explained the procedure to fill up the Form No.6 in order to enter one's name in the electoral roll. He stated that it is very important to fill that form correctly and get their names enlisted in the voter-lists of their constituency. Later, they will be given voter ID-cards. He distributed the forms to the students and guided them to fill it properly and return. Then we had an interactive session where the students cleared their doubts.

The Principal Dr. Fr. T. Nishaant, SJ further added that five credit points will be rewarded to those who vote in the next election. He further emphasized on the commitment we need to show towards our nation. The vote of thanks was proposed by Ria Sharma of BA - part III.
