Mumbai: Ayushmann Khurrana is multi talented performer who can sing and act brilliantly. The actor has bridged many functions within showbiz to become a credible movie star today. Not only writing but he also has a flair for writing and poetry. Ayushmann has been an inspiration for young folk in Haryana and his home town, Chandigarh.
Which is why the state of Haryana has chosen him to be Icon of Youth to build awareness around elections amongst the young. Haryana faces a perceptible gap in the Elector Population Ratio in terms of youth participation, which lags behind at 58.95 and is proportionately low. The state also faces a negative gender ration of 863 when it comes to voting. To address this gap amongst the youth and to spread awareness around the value of casting your vote, Ayushmann has been chosen as the State Icon.
"Voting is a choice that empowers each one of us to participate in government forming. That I have been chosen for this honour makes me feel fortunate. I will do my best to engage with everyone including the young folk of Haryana to participate in this crucial exercise of electing a government. More power to the young! "said Ayushmann Khurrana
