This column will talk about students who have been selected by the authorities to increase the awareness and importance of voting among the electorate
We frequently organise street plays both inside and outside the college campus aiming to increase awareness regarding importance of voting among the people. The campus ambassadors along with college students organised camps at schools and colonies for increasing awareness.
A camp was also organised at Shri Gujarati Samaj School for educating students that after they become 18 years, they must make get their voter ID and participate in the voting exercise. The campus ambassadors, under the guidance of their nodal officers, also work throughout the year in helping students to get their voter ID cards. The students also organised visits to nearby colonies with posters and banners with an aim to increase the voting awareness.

One must carefully look for certain qualities in a candidate like education, communication skills and connectivity on a grassroots level. The candidate’s response and reaction on social issues and problems should be practical. They must not just make announcements to impress the vote bank and fail when it comes to implementing the solutions.
The more the candidate spends time with his voters, the more they can understand the problems faced by common people. Most importantly the candidate should not hold any criminal record against him.
