Voting for single phase of Assembly elections in Punjab and Goa is underway. While Goa is voting to elect members for the 40-seat Assembly, in Punjab 1.98 crore eligible voters will decide the fate of nearly 1,145 candidates for 117-seat Assembly.
In Goa, the fate of five former chief ministers and present CM Laxmikant Parsekar will be sealed in Electronic Voting machines by 5pm today. On the other hand, in Punjab, CM Parkash Singh Badal is battling anti-incumbency after two consecutive terms.
Both the states witnessed a massive push during campaigning by new entrant - Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which scripted a shocking win in Delhi polls in 2015. The Arving Kejriwal-led party is expecting to recreate the magic of Delhi and pre-poll surveys have shown that the party will bring in good number of seats in the contest between the Congress, AAP and BJP-SAD combine.
