The Collector also awarded prizes to winners of inter-school and inter-college National Voters’ Day competitions and honored election awareness campaign ambassadors. Elsewhere, Kanniyakumari District Collector P. N. Sridhar led a voters’ awareness rally in Nagercoil, with the participation of NCC cadets and ex-servicemen.

Additional Initiatives
