90-yr-old woman votes to end poverty

A ninety-year-old woman casted her vote at a polling station in Kahara village of district Doda during the 2nd phase of parliamentary polls on Thursday.

Mata Begum was lent a helping hand by her son to reach the polling booth set up near her house as she is bedridden due to her ailing health. “I came out to cast my vote in a bid to end poverty. I wanted to elect my representative, who I believe will do something on the ground to help the poor,” she said.
