Delhi Elections: Inexplicable rise in voter turnout recorded in Delhi, West Delhi sees 5% rise in just 10 minutes

It is pertinent to note that the areas that have seen voter mobilisation of late are the same areas where PM Modi addressed his political rallies in the run-up to Delhi elections.

The evening voter percentage in Delhi saw a sharp uptick as about 54 per cent of voter turnout has been recorded so far. The national capital had recorded a voter turnout of 67.12 per cent in the 2015 assembly elections.

However, the precipitous rise in Delhi voter turnout is attributed to the inexplicably high attendance of people coming out to vote in East and West Delhi. The late surge has thrown all the three political parties-BJP, AAP and Congress off-guard as polling enters in the final hour.

Hari Nagar, Uttam Nagar, Dwarka, Rajinder Nagar, RK Puram are some more the areas in west Delhi which have witnessed a late rise in the voter turnout. Amongst regions of East Delhi, Vishwas Nagar, Krishna Nagar, Gandhi Nagar and Shahdara are the neighbourhoods where people have come out in droves to cast their votes. In north-east Delhi, Gonda and Mustafabad have all witnessed a delayed upsurge in the voter turnout.

According to the reports, West Delhi has seen a steep rise of 5 per cent in voting within 10 minutes.

It is pertinent to note that the areas that have seen voter mobilisation of late are the same areas where PM Modi addressed his political rallies in the run-up to Delhi elections. PM Modi visited only East Delhi and West Delhi for campaigning for the Delhi assembly elections.

In East Delhi, he addressed a gathering at Karkardooma while in West Delhi, he took part in an election rally in Dwarka. Political pundits have attributed this late mobilisation of voters to PM Modi’s visits in these areas.
