New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah on Thursday appealed to voters to exercise their electoral right as the second phase of Lok Sabha elections was underway.
"When you vote today, remember that you vote for Nyay," Gandhi said on Twitter, referring to Congress' minimum income guarantee scheme "NYAY".
"Nyay for our unemployed youth; for our struggling farmers; for the small traders whose businesses were destroyed by demonetisation; for those who were persecuted because of their caste or religion," he added.
Shah also took to Twitter to urge people to cast their votes, referring to the Balakot air strike by the Indian Air Force and anti-satellite missile launch "Mission Shakti".
"New India of ours is setting higher benchmarks in every field, whether it be on earth, water, sky or even space.
"I appeal to all the voters in phase two, especially the young, that you must vote to keep this momentum going. In your one vote lies the country's pride and progress," Shah said.
