From proper implementation on the ban on child marriages and proper education in rural areas, to safety of women on the roads and provision of basic amenities, what do the young voters of Rajasthan dream and demand?
The Quint and Facebook have launched ‘Me, The Change,’ a campaign that discusses all these issues that concern first-time women voters across India.
As a part of this campaign, we spoke to a group of young voters in Jodhpur who say that most of them had to move out of their native villages because there were no proper educational facilities. Some of them also state that child marriages are still prevalent in their villages. Others point out that there is a massive lack of basic amenities like water supply and electricity.
Young Rajasthan has voiced its concerns. Will the upcoming government, which comes to power in the 7 December election, take note of their issues?
