Ahead of Lok Sabha Polls, Gujarat Titans Captain Shubman Gill To Don New Role For State Of Punjab

The star cricketer of team India, Shubman Gill, has been designated as the'state icon' by the Punjab Chief Electoral Officer's office ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Gill, who is an U-19 World Cup winner and a rising star in Indian cricket, is currently with the Indian cricket team for the ongoing Test series against England at home. Chief Electoral Officer Sibin C said on Monday that he will be engaging in various election campaigns, urging the voters to exercise their voting rights and creating awareness in the process.
The poll panel has set the target for "Is Vaar 70 Paar?" Punjab had recorded a voter turnout of 65.96 in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls for the 13 seats. In a meeting chaired by Sibin with all deputy commissioners of Punjab on Friday, this development took place. He has also asked the authorities to identify areas where the voting percentage was low during the last elections.
The CEO expressed hope that the first-time voters would be influenced by the star youngster of team India, Shubman Gill and Tarsem Jassar, and exercise their franchise, while also appealing to people of other age groups to vote in large numbers. The Lok Sabha polls are most likely to be held in the months of April and May.
