A day before the voting, there was a ruckus in the inner circle due to the triangular fight in the by-election. Excited workers waited for him as his family stalwart Dharmendra Yadav fielded him in the seat vacated by the quitting of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, which surely must have been undermined. BJP's Dinesh Lal Yadav 'Nirhua' and BSP's candidate Shah Alam alias Gaddu Jamali are also pushing for victory.
The enthusiasm of the administration was also seen in the preparations for the voting. The staff leaving the booths, the rally of the assistant returning officers carrying EVMs and VVPATs and the rally of the soldiers with the security equipment seemed like an election fair.On June 23, 18,38,930 voters will vote for the 69-Azamgarh parliamentary seat. Despite the lack of Akhilesh, his MLAs have supported Dharmendra's strength very well. SP's hopes cannot be underestimated due to the absence of BSP chief Mayawati in the triangular fight.
In fact, the party has hopes from the Muslim face Shah Alam, who is competing in the field for the second time from the BSP, while the BJP is keeping hopes from the scattering of votes. For the cleanliness in the elections, 1149 polling stations and 2176 booths have been divided into 15 zones and 137 sectors, the duty of 20 thousand soldiers has been imposed. Three ASPs, seven COs and 550 inspectors have been deployed for security. The security of the booths will be handled by the Paramilitary Police while the security of the outer area will be handled by the police.
Superintendent of Police Anurag Arya said that those who create ruckus at the booths should be dealt with strictly. Care should be taken not to cause any inconvenience to the voters. He was speaking during the briefing of the jawans at the Police Lines on Wednesday. Said that sufficient number of forces will be there at the booths.
