UP Elections 2022 | no delay, all political parties want polls on schedule: CEC Sushil Chandra

Speaking at the press conference in Lucknow, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra said: "It a matter of worry why voting percentage is less in the state where there is high political awareness among people."

Speaking at the press conference in Lucknow, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra said: "61% voter turnout was recorded in 2017 UP assembly elections.
