Bengaluru: The fate of 1,121 candidates who are in the fray will be decided as the results of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) polls will be declared on Tuesday. Major political parties in the fray are the Congress, BJP and JDS. AIMIM is also contesting in 30 wards. Loksatta Party is also in the fray in some wards.
The counting of votes in all the 197 wards is likely to be completed by 1 pm. The electronic voting machines will be unlocked at 8 am. The BBMP is working to provide real time information at the Palike headquarters. BBMP Commissioner G Kumar Naik said counting will start in all the 27 centres, Assembly-segment wise, at 8 am.
The results will be immediately fed into the Palike’s website, which will be accessible only to the officials. The same information will be flashed on a display board at the Palike head office.
The BBMP, however, is not very sure of putting up the results on its specially created website http://bbmp.gov.in/ bbmp-election as it was still running trials on Monday, said Assistant Commissioner (Elections) Mallikarjun. The State Election Commission will display the results only after it is obtained from the BBMP.
