Young mostly keep away giving parties heartbreak.

    Political parties aiming to 'catch 'em young', would sourly be disappointed! For, on the D-day, youngsters who most parties hoped would turn up in hoards, mostly kept away.
An MNS worker from Borivali (west) claimed though they had knocked on doors and urged voters to come out and vote irrespective of party affiliation, the response was dull. "We don't know the reason," he added.
At part 231, where Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and family voted and where over 5,000 voters are registered, till 11pm only around 1,500 had exercised their franchise. And most of them were the elderly or the middle-aged. However, Patuck Junior College polling station in Vakola saw several first-time voters from nearby semi-slum areas coming out to vote.
Senior citizens, who voted, condemned the lackadaisical attitude of the young: 89-year old Khushiram Devnani, who has severe arthritis pain and could barely walk, voted.
Political observers attributed the youths' lukewarm response to the break-up between Sena and BJP, and subsequent ambiguity over who would lead the state post-polls.
The question among the youth then was who would be the PM, and Modi had been projected as a larger-than-life image. However, in this election, none of the parties could project a CM candidate. By the time they did, youngsters had lost interest.
Also, some of the youngsters were disappointed that none of the promises Modi had made during LS polls had yet been fulfilled
