"The first few hours saw very less people turning up. However, the momentum appeared to have picked up after 10.30 am. 11.02 percent of the electorate cast their votes till 11 am," said top officials in Chief Electoral Office of Delhi.

"The polling has so far been peaceful and there were no reports of any untoward incident," the officials said.

Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken, while casting his vote, said the bypoll was a referendum on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's two-year rule and expressed confidence about winning the election.

"This bypoll is very important and the Congress will win this election. The contest is mainly between the Congress and the BJP. This is directly parliamentary election," the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief said.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said that Harjeet Singh will cast his vote in the afternoon.
