The district administration will hold a special meet on Sunday with NGOs working for youth, Ganesh mandals, Dhol Tasha groups and Youth clubs to encourage youths to register themselves in the ongoing voters' registration drive.The meet will be held at the Council Hall at 11 am.
Pune district collector Vikas Deshmukh will address the meet and encourage first-time voters to register themselves in the ongoing drive that is on till October 31.
"The collector has urged the representatives of the NGOs and other organisations to attend the function and understand more about the drive,'' said administration officials.
The administration has already reached out to college representatives and issued them voters' forms. The forms are being collected by specially-elected representatives and the administration has roped in special officers to sort the forms.
With the earlier drives showing very poor response from the first-time voters, the administration is focusing on them under the voters' registration drive.
The administration has also set up a task force committee for the same. Dr Milind Boi and Shirish Mohite can be contacted on 9823047544/9822282353
