On the eve of the Lok Sabha polls in the national capital, Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena reminded Delhiites that Saturday is a “day of duty” and not a holiday, urging voters to exercise their franchise.

In a video message, Saxena advised people to cast their votes early in the morning due to the intense summer heat in the city.

Voting for the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will take place from 7 am to 6 pm on Saturday.

“We are going to celebrate the festival of democracy on May 25. Festivals like Holi, Diwali, Eid, and Christmas come every year, but this biggest poll festival comes only once in five years,” said the LG in his message.

He called the Lok Sabha polls a “golden opportunity for the people to decide the future direction of the country and shape it socio-economically and politically as per their wish”.

There are 1.52 crore valid voters in Delhi, including 82 lakh male, 69 lakh female, and 1,228 third-gender voters.

“I appeal to all of you to participate enthusiastically in the festival of voting to form a government that is strong and performing,” said the LG. (With inputs from PTI)
