High voter turnout in assembly polls on Tuesday

Apr 06, 2021 23:04 IST | By Editorji News Desk

4 states and a union territory voted on Tuesday to choose their next Chief Minister.  

In Bengal, which held the third phase of voting in its eight-phase polls, five candidates, including two women, were assaulted in poll-related clashes as over 77 percent voting was recorded in 31 seats in West Bengal till 5 PM.

The three-phase assembly election culminated in Assam with nearly 79 percent polling in the final round in the state where the ruling BJP is battling the Congress-led alliance to retain power

In Kerala, where the Left is hoping to beat anti-incumbency to retain power, a feat unseen in four decades, while the BJP is making efforts to build inroads, nearly 74 percent polling was recorded till 7 PM. There was 63.47 percent voting in Tamil Nadu for 234 assembly constituencies and 77.90 percent in Puducherry till 5 PM.

The counting of votes in the states will be held on May 2.
