I am listening to my conscience and going out to support candidates whose larger interest and concern is the betterment of society and uplift of the conditions of people.
I am all for candidates engaged in doing outstanding social work like promoting and providing education, building bridges, houses and hospitals, and creating employment in their own small way.
So far I have campaigned for candidates from the Congress, BJP and Nationalist Congress Party (like Milind Deora, Vinod Khanna and Praful Patel) who I know for sure have been indulging in outstanding social work.
It may appear that these candidates approached a film star to garner support. But they didn't approach me. I volunteered to help them after learning through friends and talking to people about what they have been doing. I will be asking people to vote, not as a film star, but as a common citizen who believes in bringing about change by being the change. I will be there wherever and whenever I am required the most.
My personal belief on a single party ideology remains in my heart, but my larger concern is support to the candidates who have done good work for people -- and not those netas who give empty bhashans. There are some potentially-able candidates who have been indulging in boastful, inflammatory, unacceptable and unpardonable speeches. What's the point? This particular communal factor -- a deterrent in sustaining support in the long run -- comes in the way of their good work. Aisa bhashan jyada door tak nahin failta aur jyaada din nahin chalta. We live in a society of the people and by the people, what matters in the long run is the work you do for people. Dua milti hai, goodwill and trust banta hai, and that translates into votes. So, voters must go out and vote, and they should vote for the right candidate. May the party that has the best interests for people at heart win.
