The second phase of voting in India’s Lok Sabha elections tomorrow

Voting is underway for the 18th Lok Sabha elections in India, the world’s largest democracy. Tomorrow, Friday (April 26), the second phase of the seven-phase election will be held.

Earlier, polling was completed in the first phase of this election in 102 constituencies of 1 state and union territory last Friday (April 19).

Polling will be held in 89 Lok Sabha constituencies in 13 states of the country in the second phase. Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Kerala, Assam, Bihar, Manipur, Rajasthan, Tripura, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Jammu and Kashmir will go to polls tomorrow.

Several heavyweight candidates are in the fray in the second round of polls. Among them are veteran candidates like Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Annie Raja, Shashi Tharoor, Navneet Rana, Om Birla, Hema Malini, Arun Govil and Prahlad Joshi.

In tomorrow’s polls, the eyes of the whole country will be on Kerala’s one-way center. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is fighting there. Earlier, Rahul had won from this seat by a margin of more than 350,000 votes.

On the other hand, the Bharatiya Janata Party has not been in power in the Kerala state assembly since independence. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BJP did not get any seats in the 20-seat state. Similarly, in the 2021 state assembly polls, the BJP did not win even one of the 140 seats. Even in municipalities, village panchayats, the presence of saffron camps is like burning lamps.

Polling for the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections was held in 102 constituencies across 21 states. The states are: Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and West Bengal; And Union Territories – Andaman and Nicobar, Lakshadweep, Jammu and Kashmir and Puducherry.

According to the country’s Election Commission, the first phase of elections recorded an average voter turnout of more than 60-65 percent in all states.

India’s Lok Sabha elections are being held in seven phases. The first phase of the election was held on April 19. After tomorrow, April 26, there will be voting on May 7, May 13, May 20, May 25 and finally on June 1. And counting of votes will be on June 4. The number of voters in this election is about 97 million; Out of which 21 crore are young people.
