Prime Minister Narendra Modi today encouraged first-time voters to choose the BJP, a milestone move for young people that he said will help strengthen the country even more. "Can your first vote in your life ensure that the poor get a home? Can your first vote ensure that water reaches the fields of farmers?" PM Modi asked the crowds at a rally in Maharashtra's Latur, as he prodded them to think about the choice that they have of developing the country. The sea of people waving BJP flags in the blazing sun cheered back.
