Thousands of officials from the Election Commission are already preparing for the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections that begin on Thursday.
In the first phase, 91 constituencies in 18 states and two Union Territories going to polls. In Assam five constituencies — Tezpur, Kaliabor, Jorhat, Dibrugarh, Lakhimpur— are going to polls, and some of them are in remote locations.
And since this democratic exercise must happen, no matter how far the booth is, the officials much reach. So they took boats.
