BJP candidate Kewal Dhillon, who is contesting Sangrur by elections has opposed the demand of Punjab chief minister Bhawant Mann to election commission to extend the voting by one hour.

He requested the election commission to not to increase the voting timing by one hour. Till 5 pm 36.4 percent votes were polled in this Sangrur by elections.

Dhillon said “appeal to the Election Commission to extend the time directly proves that the Aam Aadmi Party is in a dilemma due to non-availability of votes. They have come to know that the people are very upset with the Aam Aadmi Party government, which is why they are not getting votes. That is why they want to use the government machinery for one hour to get their candidate to vote. I would like to appeal to the Election Commission not to extend the voting time, which could endanger democracy.”
