Election officials travel deep inside jungle so lone holy man can vote

Updated : April 24, 2019 09:12 AM IST

A four-member team of election officials, accompanied by a policeman, set up a special polling station deep in the Gir wildlife sanctuary so a sole voter—Bharatdas Darshandas—could vote in the general election.
Darshandas has not missed an election since 2002, and cast his vote on Tuesday by walking nearly a kilometre to the special polling station.
