Indore: When it comes to experienced professionals and seniors, voting plays an essential role with a hope of bringing in a government that considers betterment of people irrespective of their caste and creed. While most parties use various policies, rules and tactics influenced by caste to win bulk votes, seniors are hoping to get a party that talks about overall development and equal treatment.
While some are considering the bigger picture with party, its manifesto and possible developments, some others feel a capable candidate who represents the public and works for them is must. Considering different aspects, the overall picture considers development of society with control in crime rate. Sharing his take, 76-year-old retired professional Vyapak Krishnan Sood said, “I would be considering overall picture, past experience and trust on party as well as the candidate.” He felt that a proper analysis of candidates contesting in election is must for every voter.
“If a good candidate is representing a party that has a bad track record, then there are fewer chances that he/she will be able to help people,” Sood said. Having lived in Canada for most of his life, he felt that working on rules and providing safety should be utmost concern of government.
“People are a facing a lot of issues, but nobody is willing to represent them and work for them,” 54-year-old environmentalist Rajendra Singh said. He quoted the importance of working on day-to-day issues that concern people like transport, safety, health facilities and traffic norms.
“I would consider the candidate for casting my vote, because I truly believe that a good candidate can inspire and bring a change for people,” Singh said. He is looking for a strong candidate, who has the capability of raising and working on issues.
Equate all without reservation
I feel votes should be cast considering benefit of our country at large and majority of segments. Though some parties have made rules that make our life difficult, they are working for development. The competing parties lack the will to do anything good for the country. Hence, even though I might not like the candidate contesting in the election, I will be voting the party that at least does something good. The idea of having a party that worked for overall development of every segment and consider benefits for all is lacking now. I feel strongly about equality and hence, it would be the most important factor for my vote.
