A central election observer deputed to Maharashtra's Bhiwandi Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to polls on May 20, is using the power of music to urge voters to cast their ballots. At a function held here to galvanise voter participation, Chittaranjan Dhangada Majhi ventured beyond his observer's role with the rendition 'Apna ye vote hai… apni ye pehchan hai…', said the Thane district administration in a release on Saturday. The song, composed by Chinar-Mahesh, urges citizens to exercise their franchise on polling day, it said. Majhi, a 2010 IRS officer, recently released a song titled 'Vande Bharat' on YouTube, the release said, adding that Collector and District Election Officer Ashok Shingare was among those who attended the function. Bhiwandi and 12 other Lok Sabha seats, including six in Mumbai, will vote in the fifth phase of general elections on May 20. It will also mark the conclusion of the Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra.
