President Ram Nath Kovind, the first citizen of the country, exercised his franchise at a voting booth in Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday.
Kovind along with his wife Savita cast his vote at the booth.
This is the first time that Kovind has exercised his voting right after taking over as the President of India in July 2017.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on returning from Vietnam after a successful 4-day visit exercised his right to vote at a booth in Nirman Bhawan in New Delhi.
The Vice President was accompanied by his wife, who also exercised her voting right along with him. He also urged the citizens to vote and consider voting, not just a right but also a responsibility.
Vice President reiterated in twitter, “Voting is not only a right but also a responsibility. We must definitely go out and Vote.”
