Polling within the seventy-one assembly constituencies of Bihar continued past 6pm within the first section of Bihar Meeting Election 2020. This was the primary main election carried out amid Covid-19 pandemic. Whereas polling remained peaceable with none main incident or EVM glitch, the state witnessed high-octane preparation for the second section scheduled on November 3 — as each Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi addressed rallies within the state on Wednesday.

That is the primary time voting went on until 6pm as an alternative of 5pm. The Election Fee prolonged voting time by one hour to keep away from crowding in any sales space. Voting continued even after 6pm, the election fee stated.

“The turnout is projected to be greater than the final Lok Sabha and Meeting election. It’s encouraging that even throughout Covid-19 pandemic, folks got here out to forged votes. In 2015 Meeting election, the voter turnout until 5pm was 54.94%. And in 2019 Lok Sabha election, the voter turnout until 5pm was 53.54%. The polling remains to be occurring. The most recent figures will probably be shared with you later. I want to thank Bihar voters, political events, media individuals for making the primary election amid Coronavirus occur easily,” chief election commissioner Sunil Arora stated.

The voter turnout proportion was 46.29 until 3pm. Within the early hours, the turnout was comparatively low as until 11am, the voter turnout was solely 18.30 per cent. Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad stated the voting proportion signifies that Bihar folks need peace, growth and stability.

Union minister and senior BJP chief Giriraj Singh forged his vote at a polling sales space in Lakhisarai, whereas former Bihar chief minister and HAM president Jitan Ram Manjhi exercised his franchise at a sales space in Gaya. State ministers and in addition candidates from totally different constituencies- Vijay Sinha and Krishnandan Verma- and Commonwealth Video games gold medal profitable shooter Shreyasi Singh, BJP nominee from Jamui seat, forged their vote.

The BJP has accused Rahul Gandhi of violating Mannequin Code of Conduct because the Congress chief on Wednesday morning tweeted urging voters to forged their votes in favour of the Mahagathbandhan. The Election Fee has ordered an FIR towards BJP chief and Bihar agriculture minister Prem Kumar for casting his vote carrying a masks along with his social gathering’s image on it.
