Important Update for Jalandhar West By-Election: Ink to Be Applied on Middle Finger to Avoid Confusion

In a significant update concerning the Jalandhar West by-election, District Election Officer Dr. Himanshu Agarwal announced today that voters will have ink applied on their middle finger instead of the index finger while casting their vote. This change comes in response to potential confusion among voters due to the recent Lok Sabha elections, where ink was applied on the index finger. To eliminate any misunderstanding, the Election Commission of India has issued new guidelines. Dr. Agarwal emphasized that all polling staff have been instructed to adhere to these new directives to ensure a smooth voting process and avoid any inconvenience. Notably, the election campaign for the Jalandhar by-election will conclude today at 5 PM. Consequently, all liquor shops in Jalandhar will be closed from 5 PM on July 8. Strict action will be taken against any violations of this order, and all liquor outlets have been notified accordingly. The political atmosphere in Punjab has been heated following the Lok Sabha elections, and the upcoming by-election in Jalandhar West has garnered significant attention. The seat became vacant after MLA Sheetal Angural resigned. The by-election is scheduled for July 10, with candidates from all major parties making vigorous efforts to secure the seat. The new ink application method aims to prevent any confusion among voters, ensuring a clear and efficient electoral process. As the campaign period ends and preparations intensify, the focus remains on conducting a fair and orderly election in Jalandhar West.
