Akhilesh Yadav was reportedly among the first to be pinged by the Prime Minister in a series of tweets this morning, called for more voters participated in April-May National Election. In reply, the SP leader, who is one of PM Modi’s critics, added his comment to the appeal.
In Twitter by tagging multiple personalities from politics, films, media, and sports, the Prime Minister has sent out a message for help to encourage voters to caste their Democratic Rights in next month’s election.
In his first tweet, PM Modi appealed to Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi, MK Stalin, Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati, Sharad Pawar, Akhilesh Yadav, and Tejashwi Yadav to “encourage increased voter participation in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. A high turnout augurs well for our democratic fabric.”
All the political leaders in this group are proactive in opposition attempts for a mahagathbandhan or grand alliance to take on centre-ruling BJP. Mr. Yadav was the first person in the group to reply in PM’s ping.
The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said, “I am delighted that PM is appealing to the #MahaGathbandhan for #MahaParivartan (mega change). I also appeal to all Indian citizens to vote in large numbers and choose a new Prime Minister.”
2019 National Election will take place in seven rounds between April 11 to May 19 and the results will be out on May 23.
One of the most focused states will be Uttar Pradesh, which consists of the highest number of Parliamentary seats. Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav had tied-up with Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to take on BJP in the state, which with thrown it from power in 2017 Elections.
