In everyone's mind there is always a question that why should they cast their vote, as the leaders of any party is not helping in improving their standard of living. Whichever party comes to power , nothing is changed except the face of the PM or CM . But one cannot punish the system for the outcomes of the happenings.
Our constitution gave us some fundamental rights . Casting our vote in an election is one of them. So we should exercise our right.
Greater the number of voters who voted in a election, better the result will me. In a democratic country numbers reflect the accuracy of the people's mind. So if a MLA or MP who wins with a largest number of votes shows that the election was fair and good.
If we refrain ourselves from voting , we are helping the wrong people to come to power.

In India it is impossible to make voting as compulsory. In 2014 general elections, 814.5 million voters were eligible for voting. If 10 percent of people refuse to vote, how can the government punish such large number of people? So it is practically impossible.

It should be carved in Indian voters mind that voting and selecting the right person to govern the country is their fundamental right.
