Srinagar, April 11 (KNO): Army troops deployed in J&K participated in the democratic process by casting their votes. In a first-of-its-kind, the Election Commission of India provided the facility to the troops deployed in far flung, remote and inhospitable terrain to download their ballot papers online, vote and forward the ballot papers to their respective Electoral Returning Officers through post. Braving the severe weather conditions and undeterred by the ceasefire violations, the soldiers enthusiastically cast their votes for parliamentary elections; exhibiting the strength of the democratic process.(KNO)
