Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again urged young voters to cast their ballot on Monday as 51 parliamentary constituencies across India began polling on Monday in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha election 2019.

“Requesting all those voting in today’s fifth phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections to do so in large numbers. A vote is the most effective way to enrich our democracy and contribute to India’s better future,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

The fifth phase is being held entirely in the Hindi belt of the country except for the seven Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal and Anantnag and Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its other National Democratic Alliance (NDA) partners had the highest seat share in the seats, which are going to polls on Monday, in the last Lok Sabha election. The NDA won 41 out of these 51 seats in 2014, 27 more than its 2009 tally.

The votes will be counted on May 23.
