Pledge2Vote, in association with Children’s Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting and Tamil Sangam, Bangalore, organised a voter awareness campaign with the message, “Vote as you please, but vote please”, here on Sunday. Actor-MLC Tara and cricketer Dodda Ganesh participated. According to a release, Ms. Tara said, “Nation building is a continuous process and elections give direction to the process; so do not stay away from it, join the process and cast your vote for whoever you please.” Mr. Ganesh said, “The smallest role that all of us can play in a democracy is of a voter and it requires only a few minutes. We must make it a habit to go out and vote every time there is an election.”
