While most of the people in the city treat the polling day as a holiday, here’s a man who has travelled cross country to vote

Pune: Nothing can really prevent a responsible citizen from exercising his ‘right to vote’, and this fact was exemplified by a gentleman who travelled all the way from Shanghai in China to Pune to cast his precious vote.
Shreeram Rajangan, a resident of Empire Estate, Chinchwad is back to India after a span of a year and he is here with a mission. Early in the morning when he visited the Chinchwad constituency’s poling booth hardly anyone knew the extraordinary effort undertaken by the man. Rajangan who’s currently employed with Loreal as a Purchase Manager of raw material feels proud to have taken on this course along with his wife. 
“I am here to vote for a better government, and if I can make this possible, I believe all the citizens here shouldn’t abstain from their duty,” said an excited Rajangan.
Having lived within and without the country, Rajangan provides a panoramic view of the political scenario of the country, especially his constituency, Chinchwad. “Despite a lot of efforts, what upsets me is the slow pace of development majorly in the area of infrastructure, even the backward classes’ interests have not been catered to,” said Rajangan speaking about specific issues that need attention. He wishes ‘to see some fruitful work being done by the politicians yielding visible results.’ Rajangan efficiently clubbed his office work along the time of the voting and hence this timely visit to Pune. Conveying the opinions of his Indian colleagues back at Shanghai, Rajangan expresses their desire to see a lot more from their native country but at the same time were positive about the voters turn out and participation of the youth of the country in the government making process.
