Chandigarh: The young voters of the lone Lok Sabha seat of Chandigarh are set to play a crucial role when LS polls will be held here on April 10.


According to official statistics, Union Territory Chandigarh, which is also the common capital of Punjab and Haryana, has a population of nearly 11.9 lakh, with a voter strength of 5.87 lakh that includes 2.65 lakh women electorates.

Nearly half of the voters in Chandigarh, which has a literacy rate of 76 per cent, are below the 45 years age group and are set to play crucial role in electing their MP. 

At present, Chandigarh is represented by Congress' four-time Lok Sabha MP Pawan Kumar Bansal, who had to step down as Railway Minister last year in the wake of the railgate scandal, in which his nephew Vijay Singla was a prime accused.
