Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday questioned the Election Commission over the delay in the final vote count of the national capital. Taking to Twitter, Sisodia wrote in Hindi: "BJP leaders are giving out the vote count. Even after 24 hours of voting, the Election Commission is not able to tell the vote count. They are saying that the data is still being collected. What is going on? Will the final vote count be given by the BJP office?"
बीजेपी के नेता मतदान के आँकड़े दे रहे है. उधर— Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) February 9, 2020
चुनाव आयोग मतदान ख़त्म होने के 24 घंटे के बाद तक नही बता पाया है कि वोटिंग कितने प्रतिशत हुई. कह रहा है कि अभी डेटा इकट्ठा किया जा रहा है.
क्या चल रहा है @CeodelhiOffice?
क्या मतदान का फ़ाइनल आँकड़ा बीजेपी ऑफ़िस से मिलना है आपको? https://t.co/vnwR2JM3vb
Amid the controversy over the delay in the vote count, the Election Commission on Sunday evening declared the voter turnout to be 62.59% in the national capital. Informing about the turnout in a press briefing, Delhi Chief Electoral Officer Ranbir Singh stated that voting continued till late evening on Saturday and EVMs had to be stored in the strongroom, leading to a delay in providing the details.
As the voting of the national capital concluded on Saturday, the Republic TV-Jan Ki Baat released the exit poll for the state to get a projection of what to expect on the counting day. The 70-seat Delhi Assembly which finished its polling on Saturday is projected to be won by AAP, revealed the Republic TV-Jan Ki Baat Exit polls. The polls witnessed an intense campaign by the three contending parties - Congress, BJP and AAP with 672 candidates in the fray.
