Haryana civic bodies' polls see low turnout

Chandigarh, Dec 27 (TIWN) Amid the farmers' protests against the three contentious farm laws, the polling for municipal elections in Haryana was held on Sunday peacefully with a low turnout in the state where the ruling BJP-Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) and the Congress were locked in a straight contest.

The poll percentage for the municipal corporations of Ambala, Panchkula and Sonepat was 52 percent, 35 per cent and 48 percent, respectively, by the end of the polling at 5.30 p.m.

Election officials told the media the percentage of voting is expected to go up further.
These are the first elections in the state after the BJP-JJP alliance came to power in the state in October 2019.
