The young game changers

The sheer force of young voters has finally pushed itself to the forefront of public consciousness. Though a negated lot when it comes to being politically aware, their votes will ultimately pave the candidate’s way into the Assembly.

The large segment has always been misunderstood as a pocket that can be filled with hopes and promises till the day of counting. But the current trend speaks otherwise.

The young are actually more powerful this time round and the anguish of having development minimised to negativity has made them more serious than ever.

The Telegraph spoke to a few young individuals who are a part of the force labelled as “18 plus” and are in an educated frenzy over exercising their franchise for the first time.
