Despite lacking basic facilities, people of this WB village never skipped voting

Alipurduar (West Bengal), Apr 09 (ANI): Bhutia Basti village in West Bengal's Alipurduar district suffers from acute water scarcity and don't have access to health care. This, however, has not demotivated the residents from leaving their homes to vote in large numbers since the independence.

The current strength of Bhutia Basti is 107 people from 33 families which somehow lead their lives despite all the adversities they face. "We are casting our vote, MPs and MLAs are making their position because of us and yet we remained in the same gutter since time immemorial," said 54 years old Arjun Chhetri, one of the last few residents of Bhutia Basti.
