"Mukherjee visited the model polling station in Rashtrapati Bhavan Saturday morning," the Twitter account of the Rashtrapati Bhavan said.

The President, however, did not cast his vote for the Delhi assembly polls, said an official. Rashtrapati Bhavan official said, "The President will not cast his vote and he did not vote in the general election either."

President's daughter and Congress candidate from Greater Kailash assembly constituency Sharmistha Mukherjee cast her vote.

"I am very confident I will win. I have been working in my constituency and have received very warm response," she said.

Voting for the 70-member Delhi Assembly began across the national capital at 8 am Saturday.
