Chennai, July 24 (IANS) Telugu actor Vishnu Manchu, who cast his vote at the ongoing panchayat polls in Andhra Pradesh, says each election is important to him.

"Every election day is important. If you choose to throw it away, don't complain down the road that you don't like the choice after poll results are declared," Vishnu said in a statement.

He was one of the earliest members to cast vote Tuesday.

Vishnu has adopted 10 villages to support them in whatever way possible.

"He has adopted 10 villages near Sree Vidyanikethan Educational Institutions, Tirupati, to provide the opportunity for the under-privileged community to access good education, good sanitation, clean water and access to primary health," he added.

"The idea behind his adoption is to create holistic and sustainable solutions to the challenges faced by village folks, helping children and families become economically empowered," said Vishnu.

Vishnu is currently busy shooting for two Telugu films - "Doosukeltha" and an untitled Telugu multi-starrer with brother and father.
