Over 70% voters show up in Rajasthan civic polls till 4 pm

There were over 70% voters who showed up today for the Rajasthan civic polls in 129 civic bodies. The polling ended at 5 PM on a peaceful note. An exception of a stray incident at Fatehpur where miscreants broke two electronic voting machines, was witnessed.

Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) NR Reddy said polling was mostly "incident-free" barring a few incidents where voters tried to break queues at some booths.

Rajasthan State Election Commissioner Ram Lubhaya said, "Two EVM machines were damaged partially when miscreants tried to enter booth number 29 at Fatehpur in Sikar district. Its data was however saved".

The machines were replaced after the incident and polling began on peaceful note there.

Strict arrangements were made with over 43,000 security personnel including state police, homeguards, and Rajasthan Armed Constabulary (RAC) deployed to ensure free and fair polls.
