Does Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit know which polling booth to vote at? If Monday's developments are taken note of, the answer will be in the negative.

Dikshit, seeking re-election from Gole Market seat, arrived at Polling Booth Number 10 of her constituency on Tilak Marg at 10.30 am. However, her name was not there in the voter's list of the booth.

Confusion and drama ensued with polling staff scanning the list repeatedly without any success.

A perusal of voter's list of other polling booths was also undertaken and the name was finally traced to Polling Booth Number 14, also set up in the same complex, which enabled her to exercise her franchise.
