|The Lok Sabha elections began on April 11 and will continue in seven phases. The second phase is taking place today in the states of Assam, Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Manipur and others. |
Polling is being conducted for 49 seats in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, UP, Assam, Bihar, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Jammu & Kashmir, Manipur and Puducherry.
While EVMs malfunctioned in various states, polling in TN’s Vellore seat had to be cancelled after the recovery of a huge amount of cash from alleged associates of DMK candidate Kathir Anand, the son of DMK treasurer Durai Murugan.
However, all these obstacles didn’t deter the spirit of voters. Young, elderly, disabled even newly married came to cast their vote in the biggest election exercise all around the globe.
