Barnijora repolling peaceful

Repolling passed off peacefully on in brisk note at the Barnijora booth on Monday.

Defying scorching heat, 90 per cent voters exercised their franchise from 7 in the morning. The polling ended at 5 in the evening at the booth having around 450 voters.      

A sensational rigging expose by a private satellite news channel forced the Election Commmission to order repoll in this booth under the Jalukbari assembly segment.

Notably, a VDP member who got deployed outside the booth managed to go inside it and allegedly pressed the EVMM button on behalf of a few voters in full view of the polling officials on Thursday.
