The electoral fate of over 1169 candidates in Haryana will be sealed in EVMs by the voters who will exercise their democratic franchise in the assembly elections

The electoral fate of over 3237 candidates in Maharashtra will be sealed in EVMs by the voters who will exercise their democratic franchise in the assembly elections.

The elections are significant as it is the first assembly polls after Modi steered the BJP-led NDA to a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha elections earlier this year for a successive second term at the Centre.

On Friday, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar addressed a public rally in Satara amidst heavy rains. He continued to address a large crowd even during the heavy rainfall.

Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge described Singh performing Shashtra Puja as "tamasha". Party leader Udit Raj also raised objections to it saying that the day "superstition" ends, India will make such fighter aircraft itself.

NCP leader Nawab Malik, on the other hand, said that the ED had sent an e-mail stating that Sharad Pawar is not required to visit the office today.

Pawar had earlier stated in a tweet that he would appear before the ED on Friday. He also appealed to the party leaders and supporters not to gather outside the agency's premises.

The investigation has been initiated based on the FIR registered by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police following directions from the Bombay High Court, ED sources said.
