In a crucial move ahead of the Lok Sabha election vote tally, leaders from the opposition INDIA bloc are scheduled to meet the full bench of the Election Commission of India on Sunday. Sources indicate that the opposition will discuss vote counting norms and will urge the electoral body to enforce the established procedures meticulously.

The strategic session on Saturday saw senior INDIA bloc leaders convene in New Delhi, with Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge presiding. Although prominent parties like TMC and PDP were absent, Kharge confirmed the decision to meet with the Election Commission on Sunday to address various procedural concerns.

Furthermore, opposition factions have instructed their agents to vigilantly oversee the vote counting process on Tuesday. They will particularly ensure that form 17C, detailing the vote count at each polling station, is properly shared with them, reflecting their commitment to a transparent counting day.
