Lok Sabha poll phase-3: Ravindra Jadeja's sister, father cast vote in Gujarat's Jamnagar

Jamnagar: Veteran cricket all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's sister, Naina Jadeja, and father, Anirudhsinh Jadeja, cast their vote at a polling booth in Gujarat's Jamnagar during the third phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections on Tuesday.
After casting her vote, Naina spoke to ANI and said, "Voting is our right in a democracy... We should vote for a better future."
Voting commenced on Tuesday morning for 25 of the 26 parliamentary seats in Gujarat in the third phase of Lok Sabha elections.
In the Jamnagar Parliamentary constituency, the fight is between the sitting MP, BJP's Poonamben Maadam, and the Congress' JP Marayviya.
The polling for 93 Lok Sabha seats across 12 states and union territories in the third phase of the general election started on Tuesday.
The states and union territories where the elections are being held in this phase are Assam (4), Bihar (5), Chhattisgarh (7), Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu (2), Goa (2), Gujarat (25), Karnataka (14), Maharashtra (11), Madhya Pradesh (8), Uttar Pradesh (10) and West Bengal (4). The BJP has bagged the Surat seat unopposed.
In this phase, more than 1300 candidates, including around 120 women, are in the fray.
The Lok Sabha elections are being held across seven phases, from April 19 to June 1. The counting is scheduled for June 4.
Meanwhile, the star India all-rounder found a place in India's 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.
Last week, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India's 15-player squad with a couple of surprise exclusions. India are placed in Group A of the ICC tournament alongside arch-rivals Pakistan, Ireland, Canada and co-hosts USA.
India will begin their T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland on June 5 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York, followed by the marquee clash against Pakistan on June 9 at the same venue. India will then play the USA and Canada on June 12 and 15 respectively.
