Chandigarh: The Election Commission (EC) on Tuesday ordered repoll in eight polling stations falling under four different assembly segments in the Gurgaon parliamentary constituency.

Haryana chief electoral officer Shrikant Walgad said that polling at these stations would be held on 15 May from 7am to 6pm.

Walgad said the polling stations on which repolling would be held include—126-Government Primary School, Bawala (left room) in Sohna assembly segment, 44-Govt Middle School, Rehna (left room), 46-Govt Primary School, Tapkan and 103-Govt Primary School.

Other polling stations are Majra Bhandgaka in Nuh assembly segment, 34-Govt Middle School, Banarashi, 101-Govt High School, Nimkhera, 166-Govt. Primary School, Shahpur in Firozpur Jhirka assembly segment and 90-Govt Middle School, Thek in Punhana assembly segment, he said.

Reiterating its stand, the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) had on Monday asked EC to conduct repolling at a few booths of the Gurgaon parliamentary constituency. The party had alleged vote rigging at a few booths.

In a letter to chief election commissioner V.S. Sampath, AAP senior leader Yogendra Yadav, who fought as party candidate from Gurgaon Lok Sabha seat, had submitted a “scientific analysis” of the polling station-wise turnout data, which established that there was a cluster of booths “that recorded abnormally high turnout, upwards of 90% or even 95%...”

The AAP had complained about this abnormally high voting turnout on 10 April.
