Ramtek records about 55 percent voting amidst claims of victory by Sena, Congress candidates

Ramtek-4Nagpur News.

Falling apart from the high percentage of voting being witnessed in different parts of the country in the three phases of Lok Sabha Election 2014 so far, Ramtek constituency in Nagpur District recorded about 55 per cent voting. Final figure would be known only on Friday (April 11) when local Election Officer or Election Commission briefs media. However, even otherwise, the 55 per cent voting is far less than the rest of the country, of course, with some marginal increase if compared to 2009 Lok Sabha poll percentage. But candidates of Shiv Sena and Congress, the two main rivals, have started claiming their victories irrespective of voting percentage.

Talking to media in Kalmeshwar segment of Ramtek constituency just after voting was over (about 5.30 pm), Shiv Sena candidate Krupal Tumane said, “Today, I have so far visited 5 Assembly segments of the constituency and found a wave for change among the voters. I am hoping to win Ramtek seat by a margin of over 1 lakh votes. The reason is, the sitting MP Mukul Wasnik has not done any significant development for the past 5 years. People of the constituency are totally against him for failing to fulfill their aspirations. On the contrary, even after losing the last election I have been active in the Ramtek Lok Sabha constituency,” Tumane asserted.

On the other hand, Congress MLA Sunil Kedar from Saoner segment called Krupal Tumane a weak candidate against Mukul Wasnik on every count. “Mukul Wasnik will take a big lead in Saoner. Kamptee has also recorded a good voting which will benefit Mukul. In Umred segment, Rajendra Mulak has done everything that will give Mukul Wasnik a huge lead in his total tally. Anil Deshmukh has also contributed a lot to ensure big victory for Mukul Wasnik again in Ramtek constituency,” Kedar said with confidence.
