In Ahmedabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi voted in the second phase of the Gujarat Assembly elections. A cheering crowd greeted the PM as he walked to the polling booth at Nishan Public School. As he stood in line awaiting his turn to vote, he greeted the people along the way.
A short walk later, he reached his elder brother Soma Modi’s house near the polling station. During the “festival of democracy”, PM Modi congratulated voters and the Election Commission of India.
I congratulate the people of Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, and Delhi for celebrating the festival of democracy with great excitement and hope. The Election Commission is also to be congratulated for conducting the elections in such a magnificent manner, which has bolstered our prestige in the world,” he told reporters.
It was PM Modi who urged the people of the state to vote in large numbers this morning. Voting began at 8 am today and will continue until 5 pm.
“Urging all those who are voting in Phase 2 of the Gujarat elections, particularly the young voters and women voters to vote in large numbers. I will be casting my vote in Ahmedabad at around 9 AM,” PM Modi tweeted.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah also cast his vote in Ahmedabad today.
All the 16 urban seats in Ahmedabad are crucial for the BJP, which has dominated them in elections since 1990.
Polling in the second and final phase is being conducted for 93 Assembly constituencies across 14 districts of north and central Gujarat. As many as 833 candidates from 61 parties are in the contest in the second phase of polls, whose fate will be decided by over 2.51 crore voters.
The first phase of voting for 89 seats in Kutch, Saurashtra, and South Gujarat ended on December 1, with an overall turnout of 63.31 per cent.
The first phase of the Gujarat election saw low voter turnout, which prompted the Election Commission to criticise Gujarat voters over “urban apathy”.
On December 8, the results of the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections will be announced together.
