Today I visited my village for casting my votes for our Gram Panchayat elections. It was happened ones in the five years. There are so many candidates applied for four types of post. The posts are Ward Member, Sarpanch, Committee member (Nominee), Zilla Parishad (District member of the Block).
The main aim is functioning the village development work with the help of ward member. The Sarpanch will take care the job of Gram Panchayat. He will be the head of gram Panchayat. Other two post are the belongs to the block committee member and district committee. All are the beauty of the Indian Democracy. Since India is a democratic country all the members are elected by people only. Even if it is a small post as village ward member, people will cast their vote to elect that person.
Today I reached that voting centre around 10 AM. I was stayed almost one hour for casting my vote. I was enjoying the moments when I saw people are so happy for casting their votes.
Then I took some snaps of my family members and villagers and sharing this with you people.
My village is 20 km from Bhubaneswar (Temple city of India), Odisha, and India. It is belongs to Balipatna Block and Athantara grama panchayat.
