I voted because I had to vote, though much against my wishes.

I live in J.P.Nagar V Phase and I am very sorry to say that there has been no developmental work taken up for this area. Though we do have celebrities living here, there has been no improvement whatsoever for the middle class people living here.

Every time I vote because I consider this my fundamental right and would not want anyone to misuse my vote. Who wins is not the matter because we hardly see anyone come back again after the elections are over. I simply do not understand why the media is so hyped up about the percentage of voters. Even illiterate people were heard saying that they would not like to vote since their needs are not met. We live among trash scattered all over, no buses to this area, autos would not want to ply here, sanitary lines bursting out of manholes, deaf authorities – it is a torture hole for the middle class people living here. 

Still, hoping for a silver lining shining out of dark clouds, I voted.
