R Ashwin, who is leading Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League, has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow Indian cricketers to cast their votes in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.

He wants every cricketer playing in the IPL to be allowed to cast their votes from which ever place they find themselves at.

His request came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had tagged several sports personalities including him, Shikhar Dhawan, Dipa Karmakar, Hima Das and Sakshi Malik on twitter, urging them to inspire their fans to exercise their voting right in the upcoming elections.

“On the cricket field, @SDhawan25, @BhuviOfficial and @ashwinravi99 shine with their incredible talent and absolute commitment towards their team. I urge them to encourage greater voter awareness and voter participation. Young India will follow their lead. #VoteKar,” Modi tweeted.

R Ashwin, who hails from Chennai, would travel with his IPL franchise to different parts of the country during the Indian Premier League.

“I would also like to request you @narendramodi sir to enable every cricketer playing in the IPL to be allowed to cast their votes from which ever place they find themselves at,” Ashwin wrote in response to the tweet.
