A wedding card requesting guests to avoid presents or asking them to donate for charity might have been seen but a 27-year-old man from Hyderabad printed his wedding card with a special appeal to the guests to vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the upcoming polls.
Mukesh Rao Yande, a staunch supporter of the prime minister, requested the guests to skip extravagant presents for their wedding and instead gift them their vote for PM Modi in the general elections.
The cover of Mukesh and Anusha’s wedding invite seems like any other card at a first glance, but has the words: “Our gift is your vote for Modi in 2019 Lok Sabha Election”. A lotus – the BJP’s official symbol is also seen before and after the message on the card.
“We are all so busy with our day-to-day affairs that we find it difficult to dedicate time to do something for our nation. The least we can do is to support someone who toils for the nation,” Mukesh Yande said.
“Few of my family members did object to this at first, but I convinced them… It is my way of endorsing Narendra Modi’s work,” he added.
