Belagavi: Elections in India are a celebration in themselves. But for a couple from the district, their wedding date clashed with elections in the state held on May 12. However, they did not want to miss out on any of the two celebrations.
People were surprised to see Kore Galli resident Yatin Vijay Hande (30) and Kasai Galli resident Malini Vijay Tahsildar (26) queuing at the polling booths in their wedding attire early in the election day. Though their wedding "Muhurtham" was scheduled for 12.35 PM on Saturday at the Maruti Mangal Karyalaya in Chavat Gall, the couple made it a point to complete their democratic duty before exchanging their vows.
The bride and groom reached the polling stations before 11 AM, even though the celebrations on the previous night had stretched to late night. Yatin voted at the Goaves polling booth of Belagavi Constituency while Manini exercised her franchise at Tenginkeri Galli polling booth in Belagavi North Constituency. Only then did the couple proceed to tie the knot.
