“India created a world record with 64.2 crore voters, including 31.2 crore women, participating in the Lok Sabha elections this year,” Kumar stated.

Election commissioners are referred to as “Laapataa Gentlemen” in social media memes. Mr. Kumar responded, “We were always here, never went missing.” “Now memes can say the ‘Laapataa Gentlemen’ are back,” he stated.

According to Mr. Kumar, 1,692 air sorties, 135 special trains, and approximately four lakh vehicles were utilized to conduct the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

“Only 39 repolls took place in the 2024 general elections as against 540 repolls in 2019,” he stated.
