Vadodara (Gujarat), Nov 22 (ANI): Local administration in poll-bound Vadodara state hoisted a giant balloon atop a government building as part of an election awareness campaign. The balloon, mentioning the date of elections – December 14 and reading "Vote Vadodara", is the Election Commission's way of constantly reminding the residents to exercise their right to franchise. District collector of Vadodara, P. Bharathi, said the idea behind the initiative was to ensure that everybody votes compulsorily. The 180-seat assembly of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state will go to polls next month in two phases.
