Special Correspondent

GULBARGA: An estimated 50 per cent of the electorate voted in the Gulbarga Lok Sabha constituency on Thursday.

Polling was marred by sporadic incidents of clashes between Congress and BJP workers and boycott of elections in a few polling booths by people demanding basic amenities. There were also reports of many people complaining that their names were missing from the voter list.

While Congress candidate for Gulbarga M. Mallikarjun Kharge; his wife, Radhabhai Kharge; his son, Priyank Kharge; and other family members cast their votes in a polling booth at Basavanagar in Gulbarga city, BJP candidate Revu Naik Belamagi and his family members voted in Belamagi village in Gulbarga taluk.
