While Assam and Bengal are holding the third phase of election today, which also happens to be the final phase for Assam; Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry are voting in a single phase to choose the next government. Bengal has five more phases left.
Elections are taking place in Assam, Kerala, Puducherry, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. I request the people in these places to vote in record numbers, particularly the young voters.
