Muzaffarpur (Bihar) [India], November 7 (ANI): The ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) jawans carried elderly voters to a polling booth in Muzaffarpur in the third and final phase of the Bihar polls.
The coronavirus pandemic failed to dampen the voters’ enthusiasm as several elderly and differently-abled electors came out to vote in large numbers.
In Katihar, an old and sick man with an IV drip in the arm was brought to a polling station on a cot by his family members.
Locals in Muzaffarpur’s Sirnia village also constructed a temporary bridge on a water stream to help voters reach polling station.
The counting of votes will take place on November 10.
Bihar recorded a voter turnout of 55.69 per cent in the first phase and 53.51 per cent in the second phase of polls for 243 member assembly. (ANI)
