One polling station, one voter lone temple priest does democratic duty

Indian officials travelled nearly 70 km through lion-infested jungle to ensure a 69-year-old holy man got his chance to take part in the world’s biggest democratic exercise. A four-member team of election officials, accompanied by a policeman, set up a special polling station deep in the Gir wildlife sanctuary in Gujarat state so a sole voter Bharatdas Darshandas could vote in the general election.
Meanwhile, one person was killed after clashes between two political party workers erupted near an election booth in Murshidabad city. According to ANI, workers of India’s main opposition Congress party were withheld from casting their votes by regional Trinamool Congress Party, and the confrontation later turned violent.
