The election where no-one came to vote

India and Pakistan have disputed over Kashmir for nearly 70 years – since independence from Britain.

On Thursday, April 13, 2017,  India attempted to hold a highly contentious by-election in Indian-administered Kashmir. But separatist leaders called for voters to boycott the polls and protestors attacked more than 150 polling centres. There was massive security in place. But an election without voters is a very sad affair.
