There was no untoward incident and no re-polling has been ordered at any booth, a spokesman of the director, gurdwara elections, said. The counting is scheduled for January 30.

"Elections remained peaceful with order maintained by the police," said SAD (Delhi) president Paramjit Singh Sarna.

Badal-led Shiromani Akali Dal spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema said the polling percentage remained low as there were "several bogus votes that we never allowed to be cast this time".

The elections witnessed a straight neck and neck contest between SAD and SAD (Delhi).

Campaigning from both sides had ended at 5pm on Friday. The door-to-door campaigning continued till the polling on Sunday.

Delhi is divided into 46 wards to elect the DSGMC members. In the 51-member house, five members are nominated.
