Urging voters to exercise their right to vote in the general polls 2019, super star Saif Ali Khan on Tuesday stated that each and every political head should be conscious of India’s “power of unity”.
At a panel discussion, the 48-year-old actor stated that each and every vote matters a lot.
He kept on saying, “Not voting shouldn’t be an option. You can really affect change. I think one of the things that any government or any leader should fear and be really aware of is the power of unity in this country. We get together, have this union and decide and discuss to vote, suddenly we will become important to these guys and they’ll fear you. So use that and look after your country.”
The well known personality stated that voting in India is a “consolidative” procedure. He said that voting is the principal thing you can do for the betterment of your nation.
At a debate on Benetton India’s movement #UnitedByVote together with Bhumi Pednekar and Siddhant Chaturvedi, the megastar said, “I think young people notoriously do not vote. That’s the reason we are here today… to speak about the importance of that vote.”
During election period, he stated that it is vital to do a fair amount of interpretation and study before voting.
“Even political parties have realised they need to put out their manifestos. So you have to read and find out things. Don’t believe everything you read, there’s so much rubbish out there.
“You have to realize when someone is pro-government or unnecessarily against the government. There are certain publications and websites which speak the truth, so read from all angles,” the well known actor added.
