75 Percent Polling Recorded in Assam Reelection

Guwahati, Assam (PTI): Around 75 percent turnout was recorded during re-polling in six centres of three Assam assembly constituencies today.

Election officials said voting was held in a peaceful manner between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The Election Commission had ordered re-polling in these centres in Rangiya, Bhawanipur and Udalguri following disturbances during the second phase of the hustings on April 11.

At Rangiya, 83.43 percent voters cast their votes today. Polling was suspended in the constituency following clashes between the voters and BSF men leading to injury of 22 people during police baton charge.

At North Udalguri Nagar Prathimik Vidyalaya in Udalguri constituency, 62 percent voters exercised their franchise after polling was stopped on April 11 when miscreants had tried to rig the polls.

In Bhawanipur constituency, 80 per cent of the electorate cast their votes at polling station Number 111 in Geruwapara, where voting was stopped due to malfunctioning of EVMs during the second phase of polling.
