Rajasthan: Voting underway for Ramgarh assembly seat

Voting began on Monday for the Ramgarh Assembly constituency in Rajasthan.

According to the reports, the voter turnout touched 7.28 per cent in two hours.

Polling at 278 booths started at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.

Election to this constituency seat was scheduled on December 7, 2018 along with the rest of the Assembly seats but could not be held due to the death of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate Laxman Singh.

As many as 20 candidates in the fray, however, the contest remains triangular between Congress’ Saphia Zubair Khan, BJP’s Sukhwant Singh and BSP’s Jagat Singh.

About 2,35,625 voters will cast their votes. Out of these, 1,10,947 voters are females while 1,46,613 are males.

Around 2500 policemen and paramilitary personnel have been deputed.

The results will be announced on January 31.
