Disabled voter defies odds, casts ballot in eastern India

In a remarkable display of determination and civic duty, a differently-abled voter in eastern India’s Manipur made headlines as they ventured out to exercise their franchise during the recent elections.

The incident took place in the outer Manipur area on April 26.

Visuals showed a disabled woman had come to the polling booth to vote, along with one of her relatives.

An estimated 9.71% of over 77 lakh electors have cast their votes till 9 am in the five Lok Sabha constituencies of Assam where polling is underway in the second phase while over 15% turnout has been recorded in Manipur and over 16% turnout recorded in Tripura.

Polling is underway in Darrang-Udalguri constituency, newly created by redrawing the boundaries of the erstwhile Mangaldai LS seat by the delimitation last year, Diphu and Nagaon in Brahmaputra valley and Silchar and Karimganj in Barak valley of Assam.
