Meanwhile, voting began for the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha election on Sunday in 59 constituencies across six states and the National Capital Territory of Delhi. 14 seats of Uttar Pradesh, 10 seats of Haryana, eight constituencies each in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, and West Bengal, all seven seats of Delhi and four of Jharkhand have gone to polls in the ongoing phase.
The Election Commission has set up more than 1 lakh polling booths for over 10 crore eligible voters to choose from among 979 candidates.
