A 116-year-old resident of Karimganj will cast vote in the second phase of the ongoing elections at this age in a country where average life expectancy is around 70 years.

A resident of Karimganj district, Mahamud Ali is also a freedom fighter.

“Even after Independence, people living in this area used to die due to starvation. But situations have changed now. It is because of this democracy that we do not have hunger and poverty like those times,” he said.
