Advani will not be able to vote for himself

April 29, 2009 18:25 IST

BJP's prime ministerial candidate L K Advani and his wife will miss out on voting in the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat as the couple's name does not figure in the voter list of the area due to delimitation exercise.

Advani is contesting for fifth consecutive time from the seat.

The Advani couple would, however, be able to cast their vote in municipal school polling booth in Bharadiavas in Shahpur area, which has become part of newly created Ahmedabad West Parliamentary segment post delimitation.

However, Advani can bank on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's vote as the latter's name figures in the voter list in Ranip, which is in the Gandhinagar Parliamentary constituency.

Ahmedabad (West) is a SC reserved seat where the BJP has fielded Kirit Solanki, who is facing a tough opponent in Shailesh Parmar, Congress candidate and sitting MLA of Shaher Kotda Assembly segment.
