May 10: With only 48 hours to go before Delhi goes to polls in Phase 6 of Lok Sabha election, back and forth between BJP and AAP over a pamphlet has turned ugly. Gautam Gambhir has sent a defamation notice to Atishi, Manish Sisodia and Arvind Kejriwal for naming him in this issue and has demanded that they apologise over what he calls are false accusations. He said he did not know Arvind Kejriwal could stoop so low.
Meanwhile, high-octane electoral campaigns for sixth phase polling will come to a standstill on Friday evening ahead of the Lok Sabha poll here on May 12. Fifty-nine constituencies, spread over seven states, will go to polls in this phase on Sunday.
Voting in this phase will take place for 14 seats in Uttar Pradesh, 10 in Haryana, 8 seats each in West Bengal, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh, 7 in Delhi and 4 seats in Jharkhand. Star campaigners of various political parties are holding rallies and road shows in different parts of the country to the woo voters. Senior BJP leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held two public meetings in Bankura and Purulia districts of West Bengal and a rally at Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh.
