Nagpur’s first-time voters are all set to cast their vote to their favourite Lok Sabha candidate tomorrow. See what some of the first-time voters of the city had to tell Nation Next about whom they plan to exercise their democratic right for!
Twenty-one-year old Shruti Dhoot, a teacher by profession, says, I feel the BJP has done some great developmental works in the last five years in Nagpur as well as in India. I’m hopeful that the BJP will once again deliver their promise of making Nagpur a better city.
While Shruti feels that the BJP has proved its mettle in the past five years, a 23-year-old assertive entrepreneur Swaima Ahmad says, Yes, I’m a first-time voter and I firmly believe in the ideologies of Congress. The political atmosphere in our country since last four years has been worrisome. I’m sure the Congress party would reinstate my belief in democracy and eradicate crime and hate politics.
An ardent supporter of the BJP, twenty-two-year-old Vishlesh Godhani, an engineering student, says, I’m definitely voting for the BJP as I’ve seen the change Nagpur has gone through in the past five years – be it MIHAN, Nagpur Metro, etc. BJP is a progressive party that is surely going to change the face of Nagpur as well as the entire country in the future.
Nikhil Wankhede, 23-year-old student is of the opinion that the BJP has nothing for the people of Nagpur. He says, “BJP never gave Nagpur what it actually wanted. They made cement roads; they’re a huge liability as they increase the temperature. Moreover, we never required metro as of now. Since 2014, not a single college in the city received scholarships for their OBC, SC/ST students. So Congress is my only hope.”
While majority youngsters of the city have already made up their mind to vote their favourite party or candidate, Nakul Sharma, a 23-year-old restaurateur from the city, says, I don’t know which party I would be voting for! Considering the false promises all parties keep making in their manifestos. I don’t really know, which party I’d vote for.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
