Govt talks about fearless MP but closure of voting at 3 pm tells other story...

Darbu Singh Uike from Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh says the district saw unprecedented security force presence this time during elections for the first time. He says though state Govt claims of a fearless state but the election authorities decided to stop polling at 3 pm in this area. In one village Khara villagers not to vote because Govt is not doing any development work in their area. Otherwise election was peaceful and more than 80% voted. Uike@9406751188
