Everyone is celebrating the festival of democracy with great pomp. Everyone is coming out of their homes to cast their vote. Pictures of the finger on which ink was applied after voting are also being shared. But some people also came forward openly on social media who could not do so. Singer Amit Trivedi and actress Vidya Malvade made a video on their respective social media and narrated the entire incident of how despite having voter ID, they were not allowed to go to the polling booth and cast their vote. Amit Trivedi made a video on his social media handle and said, 'Hello friends, today I went to vote. There I showed them the receipt which the booth people had given me and the number was also written on it. I had my voting ID and Aadhaar card, everything. But he said that the number 1080 written on the slip does not exist. Wherever you have brought it from outside, get it repaired and bring it back. I went out, there was a very long line. When I reached after waiting in line for half an hour, a man started checking some registers for half an hour. I told him that you are searching in paper and book. We are now in the digital age. Everything happens on the internet. Well. After checking for a long time, he also checked the phone. Checked all my details. He did everything for half an hour. And then said, not sorry sir. You can't vote. I asked him I wouldn't be able to? So he said no sir, we will not be able to do this. And there were 200-300 people who left disappointed. This is happening with many people. I couldn't vote.

Vidya Malvade also could not vote

'Chak De India' actress Vidya Malvade also made a video and narrated her ordeal. He told, 'It is very sad… I spent the last three hours with my parents. I went to the voting booth. Tried to vote but my name was not there. No one knew where I lived. My number was not there. I couldn't even vote. My parents are over 70 years old. We stood there for hours. However, they were given chairs to sit there. But…it's very sad. I don't know how many forms I filled so that I could get the Voter ID card. But I did not understand this. I had taken Aadhaar card so that I could vote. But I could not vote. I do not know what to do. Branda Lok Sabha constituency has no name. I was born here, I grew up here. I spent half my life in this house. If my parents' names were there then why my name was not there, I don't know. I am very disappointed and this is not right. It is my right and duty to vote. This whole process started at 10 in the morning and I returned home without voting.
