Delhi Assembly Election 2020: Massive Fall in Turnout as Only 42.29% Cast Vote Till 4Pm

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-02-08

Voting for Delhi Assembly is currently underway after the national capital witnessed a bitterly fought election campaign. The election, where over 1.47 crore voters are likely to cast ballots, pits Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against the incumbent Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Congress is the third contender.

 

An estimated 42.29 per cent of the 1.47 crore eligible voters cast their votes in the first eight hours till 4 pm on Saturday in the election for the 70-member Delhi Assembly.

 

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Robert Vadra and their son Raihan Rajiv Vadra, who is a first-time voter, have cast their vote at booth no.114 and 116 in Lodhi Estate.



 

The early hours saw low polling as very few voters chose to brave the early morning chill to cast their franchise even after the polling began at 8 am amid tight security.
