Bhattacharya voted in Guwahati on Tuesday and told reporters, “It is encouraging to see that people have come out to vote despite the bad weather in the city on this festival of democracy.”

The senior leader of the student’s body also asserted that in a democracy, the general people are the king.

“Voters should make full use of their right to vote because they are important players in the elections,” he stated.

The boundaries of the state’s assembly and parliamentary constituencies were redrawn following the delimitation process.
