Delhi’s oldest voter, Bachan Singh is been voting since 1951 and has never missed an opportunity to cast vote. Like every time, the 111-year-old voter turned up at the polling station in Tilak Nagar area on Sunday.
The oldie reached the polling booth in Sant Garh area in a car this time and was carried inside in a chair.
He said to a news agency that “I will vote for those who worked for us.”
Bachan Singh’s youngest son Jasbeer Singh said that his father cycled to the polling booth to cast his vote till the last elections held in Delhi in 2015 but a paralysis attack three months back has forced him to the bed.
Jasbeer said to a news agency that “He never needed any help. He cooked for himself and spent most of the time doing seva in a gurdwara.”
He also said that his father doesn’t know about Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal is the chief minister of Delhi.
“He doesn’t even know that the Aam Aadmi Party exists. For him, every election has been a contest between the BJP and the Congress,” the 63-year-old said.
All the seven parliamentary constituencies in Delhi are polling on Sunday as 1.43 crore people are expected to vote.
The votes will be counted on May 23.
