Four states and one Union Territory — West Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry — voted on one of many busiest days within the ongoing meeting elections on Tuesday.
While for West Bengal, the day marks the third in an eight-phase election, in Assam it’s the third and ultimate section of voting.
Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry are witnessing a single-phase polling.
Among the lengthy queues of voters, there have been some well-known faces too who exercised their franchise.
