The latest updates flying in from various polling centers across Telangana are suggesting that many voters are returning back from the polling centers without casting their votes as the officials are not permitting cellphones inside the booths.

Incidentally, there is no facility to deposit the mobile phones outside the polling booths.

The election officials are reluctant to allow any mishappenings and rejecting the proposals of voters to carry mobile phones into the booth.

Reportedly, a total of 9% votes have been polled in Telangana till 9 PM. The elections are being held for 119 MLA constituencies across the state.
