"For the Indore seat, BJP candidate Sumitra Mahajan will be trying her luck against Satyanarayan Patel of the Congress."
Bhopal, April 22 - Madhya Pradesh will see its final round of balloting Thursday with 10 Lok Sabha consituencies going to the polls.

Of the state's 29 Lok Sabha constituencies, voting for 19 seats was completed in the first two phases on April 10 and April 17.

As many as 118 candidates are in the fray in the final phase.

A total of 16,960,213 voters, including 8,171,532 women, are eligible to exercise their franchise in 19,444 polling booths.
