In a recent piece of news, young cricketer Shubman Gill is set to be the ‘state icon’ for Punjab in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2024 polls. Within 3 months, India will be in their 2024 general elections; ahead of that, the Election Commission is also planning to designate some of the celebrities as the icons for the LS elections.

“Gill will engage in various campaigns aimed at voter awareness to ensure a voting percentage of 70 per cent. The poll panel has set the target of “Is vaar 70 paar”, said the Chief Electoral Officer Sibin C.

“In a meeting with all deputy commissioners of Punjab on Friday, they were asked to identify such areas where the voting percentage was low during the last elections. Awareness campaigns and appeals made by Shubman Gill in such areas would motivate the voters and help increase the turnout,” he added later. The Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held in April-May of this year.

Alongside Shubman Gill, star Punjabi singer Tarsem Jassar had also been picked to represent Punjab as a ‘state icon’ in the upcoming general elections. The voter turnout of Punjab in the previous general elections was 65.96 on the 13 seats in the state.

Talking about cricket, Shubman Gill is currently in action for India in the ongoing five-match Test series against England; he played a pivotal role in India’s massive win against the visitors by a massive margin of 434 runs in the recently concluded third Test in Rajkot. He scored 91 runs in the second innings of the match. He has been in a good run of form in the current five-match Test series against England.

The CEO Sibin C also hoped that the two stars from different streams would play a vital role in influencing the voters to make it to the polling station.
