LS polls: Delhi to have 19 'pink booths'
New Delhi: As many as 19 pink booths — staffed only by women — will be established for the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi, officials said. Polling in the national capital, which has seven parliamentary constituencies, is due on May 12. The first-phase of the election was held Thursday. A total of 13,816 polling stations will be established at 2,696 locations in Delhi, with a model polling station in each of the 70 assembly constituencies.
The establishment of pink booths would be a first for the city during elections. 'pink polling booths' have been used in other elections, such as the Karnataka polls last year. Delhi's CEO Ranbir Singh had said areas were being identified in the city for this purpose.
