Baramulla, Dec 04: The polling booth in Boys Higher Secondary School in Kreeri saw a 115-year old woman casting her vote.
The old woman who was helped to the polling station by her relatives said she choose to vote for a better future for her family.
“I have been casting vote since my younger days. In past, I have voted for PDP, NC, Congress but they did not do any kind of development. This time I have voted in favour of a local candidate,” she said. “I will continue to vote till my last breath.”
“We want development as BJP did nothing in the last two years. They hurt our sentiments by scrapping Article 370. This time we will use our vote against BJP to keep them out of Kashmir,” she said.
Amid cold weather, hundreds of voters turned up in large numbers in north Kashmir’s Wagoora and Sangrama Baramulla district during the third phase of District Development Council (DDC) polls.
Total 13 candidates participated in the elections—(KNO)
