Hyderabad: Re-polling for Old Malakpet ward began at 7 a.m. at 69 centers.
On Tuesday, the State Election Commission took the decision of re-polling after Communist Party of India (CPI) candidate Firdaus Fatima complained that the symbol of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) ‘Hammer, sickle and star’ was printed as the symbol of CPI. The symbol of CPI ‘Ears of Corn & Sickle’ was missing.
As many as 3,450 people voted in the elections on Tuesday.
On the repolling, they were inked on their left middle finger instead of the left index finger. Photo: Siasat.com
