As the world’s biggest democracy prepares to cast their vote, Moneycontrol speaks to first-time voters, who form a considerable chunk of eligible voters this time.

In this edition of Millennial Pulse, Moneycontrol's Aakriti Handa gets in a  conversation with students of SCM Sophia in Mumbai to understand the concerns of young, first-time voters ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

With the political discourse taking rapid turns – the Congress promising Rs 72,000 to the 20 percent most poor families under their NYAY scheme, and the BJP slamming the Congress over the coinage of ‘Hindu terror’, the students enthusiastically discussed the wide spectra of issues that affect them as first-time voters.
