Salman Khan respects PM Modi's words, asks youth to vote
Salman Khan replied and urged every Indian to vote and "participate in making the government" after the prime minister's tweet on March 13.
PM Modi had tagged Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, urging them to "motivate" youth to strengthen the country and democracy.
We are a democracy and it is every Indian's right to vote. I urge every eligible Indian to exercise your right and participate in making the Government. https://t.co/WsTdJ3w84O— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) March 21, 2019
Aamir Khan, another big name of Bollywood who found a mention in PM Modi's tweet, had replied the very day. He urged all citizens of the "biggest democracy in the world" to avail the right to vote and get "heard".
Absolutely right sir, Hon PM. Let us all engage as citizens of the biggest democracy in the world. Let us fulfill our responsibility, and avail of our right to get our voice heard.— Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) March 13, 2019
In another tweet, Salman Khan clarified that he will neither be campaigning for any political party nor contesting elections.
Recently, the Madhya Pradesh Congress had requested Salman Khan to campaign for the party in Indore, a crucial seat that has been in the iron grip of the BJP since 1989.
India will vote in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. Votes will be counted on May 23 and on the same day the results will be declared.
