“Bullets were fired. People were injured. Our candidate Qazi Nizamuddin staked his life to send them to the hospital for treatment. Such kind of incidents are also being reported from other places. Congress voters are being intimidated and stopped from reaching the booths. This is murder of democracy and a serious situation.” Rawat told PTI.

By-elections are being held in two assembly constituencies in Uttarakhand, including the Manglaur seat. The constituency previously represented by Sarwat Karim Ansari of the Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) became vacant last year following his demise on October 30.
