Death no barrier
For P. Palanichamy, a 65-year-old conservancy employee from Melavasal in Madurai, the demise of his spouse didn’t cease him from exercising his proper to vote. Mr. Palanichamy misplaced his spouse, P. Kaliammal, on Monday attributable to age-related illnesses. Despite this, he and his members of the family voted on Tuesday, even earlier than finishing Kaliammal’s final rites. “It is my democratic right to vote and I will never fail to perform this duty,” mentioned Mr. Palanichamy.
