Gujrat Panchayat Polls: The candidate, Santosh, had filed his nomination for the post of Sarpanch in Chharwala village of Vapi district.
A candidate from Gujarat’s Panchayat Polls in Vapi district was taken aback after receiving only one vote, his own, in the rural local body polls. What adds to the embarrassment for the candidate is the fact that he had a total of twelve members in his family, none of whom voted for him, India Today reported.
The candidate, Santosh, had filed his nomination for the post of Sarpanch in Chharwala village of Vapi district. He expected that at least his family, which had a total of 12 voters, would vote for him.
However, after the counting of votes, Santosh found out that he could manage to get only one vote, that too his own. He broke down in tears near the counting centre and cried that even his own family did not vote for him.
The results of over 8,600-gram panchayats are to be declared on Tuesday as counting of votes in the gram panchayat elections is underway in various centres in Gujarat.
