Dehradun, 19th April.
 In a heartwarming display of “Nari Shakti” (women power), three generations of women from a single family in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, ventured out together to participate in the ongoing Lok Sabha election. This morning, grandmother Prabha Sharma, her daughter Preeti Kaushik, and granddaughters Shamita and Sakshi Kaushik cast their votes, marking a significant moment of familial unity and civic engagement.

A photograph shared by news agency ANI captured the proud moment as the four women proudly displayed their inked fingers, symbolizing their contribution to the democratic process.

Today’s voting encompasses all five Lok Sabha seats in Uttarakhand, with the BJP having secured a clean sweep in the state during the 2019 elections. However, with the Congress showing improvement in the recent Assembly polls, the opposition party aims to capitalize on this momentum in the current electoral contest.

Dehradun, falling under the Haridwar constituency, has historically been a stronghold for the BJP, with Ramesh Pokhriyal holding the seat since 2014. This election sees Trivendra Singh Rawat representing the BJP, while Virender Rawat stands as the joint opposition candidate for the Congress.

Elsewhere in Uttarakhand, another poignant moment unfolded as a newly married couple, adorned in wedding attire, posed outside a polling booth in Pauri Garhwal after casting their votes. The Garhwal constituency, also dominated by the BJP in previous elections, sees Anil Baluni as the BJP candidate, facing competition from the Congress’ Ganesh Godiyal.

As voters across Uttarakhand exercise their democratic rights, these instances of familial participation and civic duty underscore the essence of democracy and collective empowerment.
