All the fate of the 354 candidates contesting for the 57 wards (one has been elected unopposed) of the Belgaum Corporation has been now kept inside the ballot boxes in the B.K.Model School, near Chandan Cinema, Camp.

The counting will take place on Sunday and if something has to happen it will happen on Sunday. The voting was mostly peaceful with one incident of snatching ballot papers in Khadak Galli being reported and some lathi charge in old Vadgaon area. The turnout was about 60% and the higher class wasn’t seen voting this time as many said they never know which is their ward and where they have to go for voting. The few that came were discouraged when they did not find their names on the roll.

The most important fight on which all eyes are on is ward No.15. It’s Ex-mayor Vs Ex-mayor. Sambhaji Patil Vs Vilas More. More is the same Ex-mayor who was mishandled by Kannada activists last year in Bangalore. Huge police force was in the ward but all went very peacefully there.

Now we will wait till Sunday…
