Nagpur: The polling for the Nagpur Municipal Corporation election here on Thursday went off peacefully, with an estimated 55 per cent of the voters exercising the franchise.

Only two incidents of EVM malfunctioning were recorded -- in Rameshwari and Manewada areas in south Nagpur.

Local Congress MP Vilas Muttemwar complained to the State Election Commission that returning officers in Killa, New Shaukrawari and Raghuji Nagar were "prompting" voters to go for candidates of a particular party.

Two officers were quickly replaced by the state election commission.

BJP president Nitin Gadkari, his wife Kanchan and other family members cast vote in Mahal area. Gadkari was seen riding a scooter, accompanied by party workers.
