“As the elections are around the corner, the Raahgiri Day will conduct SVEEP (Systematic Voters Educational and Electoral Participation) in the new locations, a multi-faceted process that would focus on creating awareness among the public about the importance of voting,” authority’s General Manager Rajeev Tyagi said in a PTI report.
“It would educate the public on how to vote, how to decide whom to vote, where to gather information about the candidates. Such activities would be conducted through which the residents can learn the impact of voting on their society and their nation,” he added.
The usual activities around health and fitness, dance and music, zumba, bhangra and other dance forms, sports and other hobbies will be held making your Sunday morning more fun. The local gym trainers will be teaching participants exercises to keep the mind and body fit.
