Gandhinagar Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah voted in the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency today.

After casting his vote, a beaming Modi walked to greet cheering crowds near the polling booth in Ranip area. He flashed his inked finger to them. He said, power of Voter ID is much stronger than the IED used by terrorists. People must understand the importance and vote in large numbers. IED is improvised explosive device.

Modi said voters of India are wise and know who to vote for. “They know the difference between good and bad.”

He said the feeling one gets after voting was akin to what one feels after a holy dip during Kumbh.

Modi asked the youths and first-time voters to exercise their franchise. “I welcome the youths for their active participation in making a decisive government.”

Amit Shah is the BJP candidate from Gandhinagar, which was earlier represented in the Lok Sabha by party veteran L.K. Advani who was not re-nominated by the party this time.
