Meanwhile, Meenakshi was admitted to the hospital as she went into labour on April 18. Despite the pain, she first decided to cast her vote and then head to the hospital.
“She is a huge Narendra Modi fan. She is glad that her valuable vote did not go waste as she could exercise her franchise,” said Yogananda, Meenakshi’s husband. She gave birth to a baby girl and both the newborn and the mother are fine.
