"Today is the grand festival of India. Every citizen's vote determines the direction and condition of the country. I request everyone to exercise their right to vote," the AAP leader said.

Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh voted at a polling station in Punjab's Jalandhar.

 "Today is a very important day for all of us, and I would appeal to everyone to come out and vote and elect a government that can work for you," he stated.

Taranjit Singh Sandhu, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Amritsar constituency and a former diplomat, was also among the early voters on Saturday.

Soon after casting his vote, Sandhu urged voters to vote for growth.

"The largest democratic exercise in the world is taking place. People should exercise their franchise today. I urge voters all over India to vote in large numbers today, especially in Amritsar. Voting in Amritsar should be for development. You are aware of the current scenario in Amritsar. My campaign is directly about the progress and development of Amritsar," he stated.

Voting for the last and seventh phase of the 18th Lok Sabha elections began at 7 a.m. on Saturday, marking the end of the largest democratic exercise in history. As many as 57 constituencies (General-41; ST-03; SC-13) across eight states and union territories will vote to determine the fate of 904 candidates.

Punjab, on the other hand, is divided into 13 constituencies, representing a diverse mix of urban and rural areas.
