Political commentator Dr. Sebastian Paul had written a Facebook post today morning, where he criticized Mohanlal and Tovino Thomas, “who did cast their first vote”.
“Those who are reluctant to come to the polling booths are considered as patriots…they are given civil honours and military honours, including Padma awards…” criticized Dr. Paul.
Tovino replied to this post smartly, saying “with all due respects, you should not be spreading such untrue remarks. This was not my first vote, I had written I was the first one to vote from my polling station which means I was the first one to cast my vote today…”
Tovino explains how he had travelled from Nagercoil to Irinjalakuda during the shooting of Guppy to cast his vote earlier and that he has voted in every election after turning receiving voting rights.
Tovino’s reply has become a hit in the social media.
