Nagpur News : It is very essential that every eligible citizen should cast its vote for nurturing democracy and for this wide education and awareness is being spread by agencies like Rotary, which is really commendable, thus said District Election Officer, Abhishek Krishna.

There are various programmes for making people aware but people’s participation is must. Other social agencies in Nagpur should also work in this direction, he appealed.
