Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the cricketing stalwarts of the nation to come out and inspire their compatriots to set a new record of ‘high voter turnout in the elections’. The Election Commission of India, on Sunday (March 10), announced the dates for the Lok Sabha election 2019. The Lok Sabha elections will be held in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. The votes will be counted on May 23 and the Lok Sabha election 2019 results will likely be declared on the same day.

According to a survey, nearly 90 crore voters will be eligible to vote for 543 Lok Sabha constituencies across the country. However, PM Narendra Modi wants each and every adult to exercise their voting rights. And in order to make sure the Indians get inspired and go to the polling booths, the PM has sought help from cricket stars. Mr Narendra Modi took to Twitter to post a message, tagging MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and asking them to come forward and play their part in making democracy win.

“Dear @msdhoni, @imVkohli and @ImRo45,  You are always setting outstanding records on the cricketing field but this time, do inspire the 130 crore people of India to set a new record of high voter turnout in the upcoming elections.  When this happens, democracy will be the winner!”

In another tweet, he tagged former players Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman and Virender Sehwag and made the same request to them, tweeting:

“Dear @anilkumble1074, @VVSLaxman281 and @virendersehwag – your heroic deeds on the cricket pitch have inspired millions. Come, it is time to inspire people once again, this time to vote in record numbers. “

Meanwhile, with the election dates announced, the BCCI is likely to announce the full IPL schedule soon.

The twelfth edition of the league, nonetheless, will start on March 23.
