People can follow election related topics, join discussion forums, engage with polling booths as well as find out their polling booth location. In order to get more like-minded people to have meaningful discussions, we have NOT restricted the access to only Vebbler users. People from other social media platforms can also access the site with their existing username and password. The idea is to make a difference to at least 1 million voters this year through this campaign.”. He further added,“To connect with the mass we have also launched a tongue-in cheek music video, based on the Ungli campaign, called The Ungli song. We have collaborated with the several Bollywood personalities such as Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood, Ritesh Sidhwani, Mini Mathur, Esha Deol, Prachi Desai, Kritika Kamra, Pooja Bedi amongst others to be a part of this video.
