New Delhi, Jul 17: If you are on a flight to New Delhi on Tuesday July 18 and may find a box strapped to the passenger seat, then don’t be surprised. The box is travelling with an air ticket and has its name printed as ‘Mr Ballot Box’.

According to a report by Deccan Herald, Mr Ballot Box travels as a passenger and not in the cargo for security reasons. It is this box, which contains the precious votes which will decide India’s 14th President.

To avoid any kind of tampering and with an intention to keep the box always in the sight of the security officials, the ’Ballot Box is booked as a passenger.

The Presidential elections took place on Monday from 10 am to 5 pm. The members of the Electoral College in different states and union territories cast their votes and placed them in the Ballot Box.

These boxes from the different states will be flown back to New Delhi, along with the officials in business class of the plane.

Days before the election, officials of different state legislatures travelled to New Delhi to collect the ballot boxes. The boxes were placed in high security strong rooms, always under the strict vigil of the CCTV Camera. The box was taken out only on Monday, the day of the poll, and was sealed after the voting. It will be flown back as a passenger to the national capital.

Once in the capital, the boxes will be kept under tight security and will be taken out on the counting day, which is July 20. Till then, only the boxes know if the next President is BJP-led NDA’s candidate, Ram Nath Kovind or Meira Kumar from the joint Opposition.
