First Time Vote

Posted by Swaroop C H on April 20, 2004 Filed under: bangalore, india, politics

Today, I voted for the first time! I am one of those large number of FTVs (First Time Voters) in India. It is such a thrill to take part in such a humongous exercise of democracy. After all, India is the largest democracy in the world!

I voted for the Congress candidate Ramalinga Reddy for the Vidhan Sabha (the Legislative Assembly of Karnataka State) and the BJP candidate Ananth Kumar for the Lok Sabha (the Parliament of India). Notice that I don't hesitate to vote for both parties. My vote is for anyone who does a honest job. I just hope these politicians live up to atleast half their promises.
