While a total of eight candidates were in the fray, the BJP- Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena alliance and the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) had set up their independent booths to guide voters.
Traffic congestion was reported on roads leading to the lone voting center due to barricading by the police to prevent any untoward incident. The counting of votes will be held on 2, February.
