Bhubaneswar: “Your vote is invaluable for the country and for your own sake,” said Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on the occasion of the National Voters’ Day on Thursday.

Taking to his twitter handle, Patnaik, who received the ‘Ideal Chief Minister’ award at Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad in Pune recently, encouraged the eligible citizens to exercise their right to franchise in every election.

Earlier today, a mini-marathon with a theme ‘Run For Democracy’ was conducted from Ram Mandir Square to Bhanja Kala Mandap here to create awareness among the citizens about the importance of voting during election. Hundreds of students from different schools and colleges participated in the running event.

The government of India celebrates January 25 every year as National Voters’ Day to encourage more young voters to take part in the political process.

The National Voters’ Day started from 2011 to mark Election Commission of India (ECI)’s foundation day. The ECI was founded on 25 January, 1950.
