Sadhvi Pragya, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli cast their votes, violence continues in Bengal in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections

59 constituencies in seven states of India are voting today.

As the voting for the sixth phase of elections is underway, Sadhvi Pragya, BJP candidate from Bhopal and Gautam Gambhir, BJP candidate for East Delhi were among the first to cast their votes. Gambhir is fighting it against AAP’s Atishi Marlena while Sadhvi Pragya is contesting against veteran Congress leader Digvijaya Singh.

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli was also amongst the first ones to cast his vote in Gurugram, Haryana. Congress leader Ajay Maken also cast his vote in Delhi. Ajay Maken had been a very vocal supporter of AAP-Congress alliance in Delhi and had even gone to the extent of saying that without the alliance, the Congress cannot win ‘all seven seats’ in Delhi.

Meanwhile, violence continues in West Bengal even in the sixth phase of polling. BJP worker Raman Singh was found dead in Jhargram, West Bengal last night. Two BJP workers Ananta Guchait and Ranjit Maity were reportedly shot at in Bhagabanpur in East Medinipur. Both are injured and are currently undergoing treatment in hospital.
