It was a shame to read that only 42 per cent exercised their vote, inspite of all the propaganda that it is one’s duty to vote. In my village of Gedalahalli Kothanur, there was a turn out in huge numbers. We had three centres  to cast our vote and we finished voting within a few minutes.

From the news we hear it was the middle class who did not cast their vote. I think they should be penalised in some way. We have a sensible electorate now and by casting our votes, we are making sure we get good governance.
