As polls for the first phase of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 commenced in Nagpur, Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of the Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh (RSS), was among the early birds to cast his ballot. Bhagwat exercised his right to vote at a polling station in Mahal soon after the voting began at 7 am.

As per a PTI report, Bhagwat, after casting his vote for Lok Sabha Elections 2024, urged the public to come out and vote in huge numbers. He also urged them to keep in mind the interest of the country first while casting their ballot.

"Voting is our responsibility and right as well. We kind of chart out the future of our country for the next five years. Hence, today, the first thing I did was to vote," he was quoted as saying in the PTI report.

Expressing his belief that there should be 100 per cent voting, the RSS chief said it is important for every citizen to contribute to shaping the democratic landscape.
