He first cast his vote then solemnised marriage

Bhopal, Dec 6 (UNI) The impact of a voters’ awareness campaign by the Election Commission of India was observed in youngsters in these assembly polls, official sources said on Thursday.
The desire for exercising franchise was so strong that they reached polling booths first then the mandap to solemnise their weddings!
Special facilities for the differently-able proved fruitful. Handicapped Sultan reached Chhawni booth just before the departure of his marriage procession. Dressed in groom’s attire, Sultan became the cynosure of all eyes. The people standing in the queue enquired regarding the wedding and where the procession was heading. Sultan promptly cast his vote and left for Ujjain. While praising the wheelchair facility and queue-less voting for the handicapped, he said that this increased inclination among differently-able persons.
