We strive to constantly bring our users the best experience and new initiatives and are very excited to partner with editorji and election veteran Vikram Chandra for a unique digital only coverage of election 2019 counting day. “
 
Vikram Chandra, founder, editorji said, “My first memory of election results was standing in front of the Hindustan Times building in 1977, watching the results go up on a giant scoreboard. It is a matter of great pleasure and pride to now work on the 2019 General Elections in partnership with HT. We look forward to making May 23rd the largest ever digital only election counting show.”
