7-phase Lok Sabha Election to conclude today, all eyes on PM Modi's Varanasi seat

| @indiablooms | 01 Jun 2024, 12:24 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The Election Commission of India is all geared up to hold Phase 7 of the Lok Sabha polls on Saturday, which also is the last phase.

Polling is scheduled in 57 PCs across 8 states and UTs including Bihar, Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal.

Polling for the remaining 42 Assembly Constituencies of the Odisha State Legislative Assembly will also be held simultaneously. 

Much of the focus in this phase will be on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's seat of Varanasi in UP, which he hopes to win for a third straight time.

This will mark a grand finish to the world’s largest polling marathon that began on the 19th of last month and already covered 6 phases and 486 Lok Sabha seats.

Polling for 28 States/UTs and 486 PCs has been completed. The counting of votes will take place on June 4.

Polling parties have been dispatched along with machines and poll materials to their respective polling stations.

Polling stations are ready to welcome the voters with all basic facilities including ample shade, drinking water, ramps, and toilets to ensure that polling takes place in a comfortable and secure environment.

Concerned CEOs and state machinery have been directed to take adequate measures to manage the adverse impact of hot weather or rainfall wherever predicted.

In spite of hot weather conditions, voters have turned up in significant numbers at the polling stations in the past phases. In the last two phases, female voter turnout percentage has surpassed male voter turnout.

The Commission has called upon voters to turn out in greater numbers at polling stations and vote with responsibility and pride.
