New Delhi, Nov 17 (UNI) Injecting vitality and youthfulness into the high-pitch campaigns seems to be top on the minds of political parties which are going all out to woo the young voter, believing it would turn the tide in their favour in the Delhi Assembly Elections slated to be held in less than a fortnight.

And in this pursuit, the Kirari assembly seat, where 23 candidates are in the fray, pips other constituencies at the post, as it has around 35 per cent voters below the age of 40.

On the other hand, the New Delhi assembly seat, where Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has locked horns with BJP's Vijay Jolly and the constituency where the maximum number of contestants are testing their electoral fortunes, has only 22 per cent voters below the age of 40 years, according to figures of the Delhi Election Commission.

Delhi has around 1.07 billion voters on the electoral rolls and the number of youth voters stands at 26.68 lakhs, standing at the 26.76 percentage points of the total electorate.

Kirari is followed by the Sangam Vihar and Badli constituencies having 31.11 and 31.02 per cent of young voters, respectively, while New Delhi is followed by R K Puram and Malviya Nagar which have 23.34 and 23.65 young population, respectively.
