AGNI team on IBN Lokmat channel's - Youngistan Zindabad show

AGNI volunteers James John, Dandamudi Madhuri, Anna Misquitta and Sunaina joined the IBN lokmat's Youngistan Zindabad show that discussed youth's take on voting. This was aired on 25th January, 2014 at 8PM. The show targeted the youth who by and large do not understand the value of their vote and prefer not to vote. Many of the youngsters present on the show felt, they shouldn't vote because there aren't any good candidates to vote for. James John informed them that they could place a protest vote under section 49-O of the Conduct of Election Rules, 1961. He stated that not-voting is not a solution to our existing problems. In fact by not voting, there is a greater chance of our vote being misused. Madhuri Rao said she shared a similar sentiment as many of the youths present there and had preferred not to vote when she turned 18. Her first vote was a protest vote at the age of 23 years. James John received a round of applause when he further reiterated that the youth should go out and vote as it is their choice and birthright.
