Elections in the largest democracy of the world are not easy;
Five years ago, during the last general elections in India, the country’s air force helicopters were not able to take the election officials to remote areas such as, “Ladakh” located at the summit of the Himalayan mountain range.
It was all up to election officials to walk 45 kilometers in the snowy mountains and give 35 voters the opportunity to vote.
100 million new voters added to the number of voters and the total number of voters in the country is 815 million people – more than the population of all European countries.
According to the Indian elections, none of the voters whether they live in a city or village, should not walk more than two kilometers to vote.
RSS Blkryshnan, Deputy Election Commissioner of India told to the Voice of America that the implementation of the law is not always easy. He added in the voting center of western state of Gujarat only one member had the voter registration.
He said: “there is a polling center located about 32 km in the forest. To get a vote, we will send election officials there.
Blkryshnan said for achieving one vote, we use all our sources such as, helicopters, elephants and camels. We will talk with feet for days and nights to go there and use that vote.
