In a short video released by the poll panel, the legendary cricketer says, “Chunav ka Parv Desh ka garv”.

He informs the electorate about the facilities that will be available to them at the booths.

For voters, at every polling booth, drinking water, medical kits, and a waiting area will be available, he said.

For people aged 80 and above, the ECI has provided the facilities of wheelchair, volunteer and ramp, he added.

The country is slated to go to polls in seven phases, April 19 – June 1, and counting of votes will be taken up on June 4.
