My First Vote: ‘Need hard steps’ for India’s security, says first-time voter Yashika
Nearly 18 million people between 18 and 23 are estimated to cast their ballot for the first time in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Hindustan Times’ My First Vote campaign aims to reach out to young, first-time voters to understand what they want, and what issues matter most to them. First-time voter Yashika wants the incoming government to focus on strengthening India’s security. In light of the Pulwama attack, she feels that ‘hard steps’ are needed to ensure the safety of Indian citizens.
