The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecasted that there will be rainfall accompanied by strong winds and a possibility of hail in the Malwa-Nimar region of Madhya Pradesh. 

 

This is particularly important as polling is taking place today in eight constituencies in this region, which is the state's fourth and final phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

 

The Election Commission (EC) and government agencies are collaborating to increase voter turnout, which has been impacted by factors such as extreme heat.

 

According to poll authorities, an average voter turnout of 32.38 per cent was recorded until 11 a.m. in the Lok Sabha seats of Dewas, Ujjain, Mandsour, Ratlam, Dhar, Indore, Khargone, and Khandwa.

 

MP chief electoral officer Anupam Rajan said a voter turnout of 64.76 per cent was recorded in 21 constituencies that went to the polls in the first three phases, while in the 2019 general elections, these constituencies had seen 69.74 per cent polling.

 

Talking to PTI, IMD Bhopal's senior meteorologist Abhijeet Chakrobarty said 1.5 mm of rainfall was recorded at Kannod in Dewas district of the Malwa region between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

 

As per the forecast, rainfall with gusty winds and a chance of hail is likely at isolated places in Khargone, Khandwa, Barwani, Alirajpur, Jhabua, Dhar, Indore, Ratlam, Ujjain, Dewas, Shajapur, Mandsaur and Neemuch from 8.30 am on Monday to 8.30 am on Tuesday, he said.

 

Apart from Indore, SC-reserved constituencies of Dewas and Ujjain, ST-reserved seats of Raltam, Dhar and Khargone, and Khandwa and Mandsaur received rainfall in the last 24 hours ending 8.30 am, he said.

 

He added that Manawar town in Dhar district received 46 mm of rainfall in the last 24 hours, ending at 8:30 a.m.

 

An election official said the authorities have not received complaints of power outages in polling stations.

 

He said they have learned of windstorms and gusty winds in some parts of the Nimar region, including Khandwa, Khargone, Barwani and Burhanpur districts.
