In the 6 hours of polling, the highest turnout was recorded at Jalandhar West, 39.00% and lowest at Shahkot, 37.33% .

At second place is Jalandhar North with 38.93%.

Interestingly, Adampur saw a turnout of 38.00%, where AAP candidate Pawan Kumar Tinu is the MLA is also among the highest turnouts.

The major candidates who contested elections from this seat are Pawan Kumar Tinu (AAP), Sushil Kumar Rinku (BJP), Charanjit Singh Channi (Congress), and Mohinder Singh Kaypee (SAD). Jalandhar would again be an interesting face-off for upcoming assembly elections. As Channi and Tinu who are known Dalit face contested against Sushil Rinku who has changed parties for third time but enjoys a good repo among Jalandhar residents. On Jalandhar’s Lok Sabha Seat the main fight would be between Congress candidate and former Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi and BJP’s Sushil Rinku as per analysis. However, the result might come as a surprise for everyone as political dynamics change a lot even in the last days of elections.
