All set for voting in seven LS seats in Maha

Thursday, April 11, 2019

Nagpur: All arrangements have been made for the first phase of polling Thursday in Maharashtra covering seven Lok Sabha seats, which will see a direct fight between the BJP-Shiv Sena and Congress-NCP-led alliances.

Polling will begin at 7 AM amid tight security and end at 6 PM, said officials.

Nitin Gadkari (Nagpur) and his Cabinet colleague Hansraj Ahir (Chandrapur) -- both from the BJP -- are among prominent candidates in the fray in the first phase that covers seven out of the 10 Lok Sabha seats in the Vidarbha region in Eastern Maharashtra.

The constituencies going to the polls Thursday are Nagpur, Ramtek (SC), Wardha, Bhandara Gondiya, Yavatmal- Washim, GadchiroliChimur (ST) and Chandrapur.

The remaining three parliamentary seats in the region - Akola, Buldhana and Amravati - will vote in the second phase on April 18.

Maharashtra, which has 48 Lok Sabha seats, will vote in four phases. The BJP-Sena combine had won all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in Vidarbha in 2014.
