Elections are one of the biggest events that foster the essence of democracy in the country. In a country this large, the government servants make it possible for such an event to take place without hindrances. Along with it, they also ensure maximum attendance in what can be considered the biggest electoral event in the world. A video going viral on the internet is winning hearts and is filling netizens with pride as it shows how every citizen of the country matters and how every vote weighs in importance to choosing the next leaders of the state. The clip is catapulted to social media by Uttar Pradesh Police and shows the scenes from the recently held elections in the largest state (by population) in India.

The caption further provided details and identified the policeman in the video as Pawan Kumar. The video is from the Gorakhpur district, and the woman was being carried to Badhalganj Police Station. The caption ends with UP Police stating, “Proud of you, Pawan!”

रुकावटें आती है, सफलता की राह में,यह कौन नहीं जानताफिर भी वह मंजिल पा ही लेता है,जो हार नहीं मानता।
