PTC News Desk: During the third phase of the Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi exercised his democratic right by voting at a school in Ahmedabad. The Nishan Higher Secondary School, located in the Ranip locality of the city, served as the designated polling booth for this significant event.

Along the route to the voting booth, PM Modi graciously granted an autograph to a supporter on a portrait depicting him. Outside the polling station, he emphasized the importance of voter turnout in a democracy, urging citizens to participate actively in the electoral process. "There is great importance of 'daan' in our country, and in the same spirit, the countrymen should vote as much as possible. Four rounds of voting are still ahead," remarked PM Modi.

Additionally, he advised media personnel covering the elections to prioritize their health by staying hydrated: "take care of your health and drink a lot of water."

Union Minister Amit Shah, contesting from Gandhinagar, is scheduled to cast his vote later in the day.
