Now this was given to me by the officers present outside. I had my voter’s id and aadhar card in place. In the both I was told 1080 number is not present only, so go back to where you got your receipt and get it fixed . So I went back and there was a huge queue, after waiting there for 30 minutes. I reached the person and he checked some books and paper and that search went on for another 30 minutes and ultimately he said ‘sorry sir! Nahi hai you can’t vote." He captioned his post as, “Voting is our constitutional right. Today I was denied that right and I feel helpless. Did this happen to anyone else? How.. and why?? #elections.”
