UP: Repolling ends peacefully with 94.24 pc turnout

Lucknow: Around 94.24 per cent voters today exercised their franchise in repolling at 11 booths falling under Muzzafarnagar, Badaun and Firozabad Parliamentary constituencies.

“The polling remained peaceful,” an Election Commission official said here.

After the allegations of booth capturing and rigging were brought to the notice of the Election Commission by the BJP, it ordered repolling at 11 polling booths in the State in Muzzafarnagar, Badaun and Firozabad Parliamentary constituencies.
