Bhopal, May 23 (IANS) After elections in all 29 Lok Sabha constituencies in Madhya Pradesh concluded on May 13, preparations for vote counting, which is scheduled for June 4, have begun.

District election in-charges have also been directed to review preparations and submit reports to the CEO.

Meanwhile, the Congress and the BJP are also preparing for the counting.

MP Congress leadership has called for a meeting in Bhopal on Thursday, during which the party's polling agents will be given training.

As the state BJP leadership is busy campaigning for the remaining two phases, a meeting of polling agents will be called in the coming days.

Last week, the state Congress leadership held a meeting with all Lok Sabha candidates to take stock of the situation in each constituency. The meeting was chaired by MP unit head Jitu Patwari and the state in-charge, Bhanwar Jitendra Singh.
