VOTING1New Delhi, Wednesday, April 30 – General Elections of 2014 is entering into an extremely interesting stage with each passing phase of voting. For 89 seats, polling continued today in Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu, Bihar, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh.

Voters lined up in big queue on Wednesday to cast their votes in favor of candidates contesting from different constituencies, representing bigger political parties like Bharatiya Janata Party, Indian National Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party, Samajwadi Party, Janata Dal (United) etc. Majority turnout right from early morning till evening denoted increasing faith of voters in the democracy.

A significant percentage of electorate exercised their franchise to decide the fate of popular political leaders. Apart from the common mob, prime ministerial candidate of BJP Narendra Modi – who gained solid footing during this years’ election and anticipated to be the next Prime Minister of India – Lal Krishna Advani and other political leaders also cast their precious votes.

The big fight was scheduled on the final day of April as electors cast their ballots in support of Sonia Gandhi, Modi, Advani, Rajnath Singh, Sharad Yadav, Arun Jaitley, Murali Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharati, Ambika Soni and Farooq Abdullah from different polling booths. Voter turnout in 2014 in the 7th phase is praiseworthy, but yet it would be interesting to watch how many people come out of their comfort zone on May 7 and May 12. The result of mega face off will be out on May 16 and then it would get clear who is gonna run the new government.

The new trend of posting selfies on social networking sites is getting popular day by day in the present year election. A lot of young and enthusiastic voters post their selfies with the inked finger, motivating others to use their right to vote and fulfill their responsibility of electing a government.
