The clock is ticking for the much-awaited General elections in Telangana. The elections will be held on the 30th of this month and today is the last day of campaigning. With this, the parties and contestants are giving the last push in the campaign. The intense campaign which has been going on for a few weeks will end today.
As the elections are approaching, ride-sharing platform Rapido has come up with big news as it offered free rides. The platform said that it would offer free rides to commuters to reach the polling booths to cast their votes.
Rapido said that it will offer free rides to voters to reach the polling booths. Having announced this the platform said everyone should come forward and utilise the service. This service is restricted to only the capital city Hyderabad.
There is a process that needs to be followed. To use the facility voters should open the app and enter the 'VOTENOW' code. Voters should type their polling booth as the destination. With this, the free ride will be booked and the users can reach the polling booth.
This can be seen as a big push in the efforts to increase voter turnout. Usually, voters have to reach the polling booths on their own and cast their votes. But the platform came forward to announce free rides to voters which needs to be appreciated.
With Rapido coming forward to offer free rides we have to wait and see if the vote percentage goes past the 2018 elections. In the previous elections, only 73.7 percent of votes were polled. Now we have to wait and see what happens this time.
