In Madhya Pradesh, women will handle the entire work of counting votes in Harda district of the state.  Our correspondent reports that the initiative is probably the first of its kind.

"Harda district is a part of Betul parliamentary seat and the counting of votes of Timarni and Harda assembly segments will take place at Harda district headquarter.  At present, 84 women are being trained for counting in Polytechnic College. District Election Officer S Vishwanathan told All India Radio that his intention is to encourage them and to prove that the women are not behind in any case.

Apart from the counting of votes, only women will be deployed for the security of the counting centre. Betul was voted on 6 May and the women had taken the responsibilities of voting in 60 all women polling booths in Harda district. Now they are ready to take accountability of counting on 28 tables. More than 75 percent of voting has been recorded in Harda district, so the number of votes is also high.
