In the Panchayat polling of votes in Agra, the candidate’s agent will not be approved until he has submitted the negative corona test report 72 hours in advance. The district electoral officer, Prabhu N Singh, issued these instructions on Wednesday. As a result of this arrangement, the number of people performing tests at community health centers (CHCs) in the district has increased. A number of people were hired for investigation at CHC Jagner at 7 a.m. on Thursday. By 11 a.m., 300 people had been examined. The vote took place on April 15th for the Panchayat elections in the district. When voting, the duty was imposed on teachers and staff from other departments. Many election workers became seriously ill after they finished their election service. However, the counting staff is not counted. On Wednesday District Judge Prabhu N Singh took a mandatory 72-hour covid test for candidates’ agents to be included in the vote count.

He said that all agents should conduct their investigation. They are only approved after submitting a negative report. The report should be 72 hours in advance, but the DM has postponed the issue of checking the counting staff. He said the investigation will be carried out on the basis of instructions from the commission. The counting starts on May 2nd from 3 p.m. in 15 blocks.

Hundreds of agents are robbed
The investigation was given 72 hours ago on Wednesday. On May 2, there are only 72 hours left for the votes to be counted. On the other hand, it takes three to four days for the RTPCR investigation report to arrive. In such a situation, hundreds of agents are deprived of their participation in the vote count. Anish Chahar, president of the main Rashtriya Panchayat Raj organization, said: “The government wants to influence the counting of votes, so the staff will not be examined and the agent will be asked to report.”
