Election Commission's Vote Appeal Features Mirzapur's 'Munna Bhaiyya'

India is voting in the sixth phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha electionstoday.

To encourage young voters to participate in the democratic process, the Election Commission of India on Saturday posted a new meme featuring the popular character ‘Munna Bhaiyya’ from the Amazon Prime series Mirzapur.

‘Munna Bhaiyya’, played by actor Divyenndu Sharma, is known for his stern yet memorable dialogues in the hit show. 

The Poll Body has now creatively repurposed a famous meme template associated with the character. In the original meme, ‘Munna Bhaiyya’ advises, “Padhai Likhai Karo, IAS YAS Bano”. The Election Commission, however, has given this meme a civic twist. 

In their version, ‘Munna Bhaiyya’ says, “Ye kya reels mein time barbaad kar rahe… jao vote do, loktantra ko mazboot karo [Why are you wasting time on reels…go vote and strengthen democracy].” 

“’Munna Bhaiyya”s blunt words appeal to youth to vote,” the caption read.
