New Delhi: Just a few minutes before the commencement of Assembly Elections in Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday urged voters to cast their ballots in large numbers.

On microblogging website Twitter, Modi tweeted a message in English as well as Hindi language.

Voting for the 70-member Delhi Assembly began at 8 am.

Delhi is voting today in a keenly fought election with the BJP and the AAP vying for power and an also-ran Congress desperate to make a mark.

Although the election is only to pick a new city government, it has become a high-profile battle, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi coming out vocally against the AAP and former chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

There are 11,763 polling stations in 2,530 locations. Officials said nearly 55,000 policemen and paramilitary personnel have been deployed.
