Brisk polling is going on in the second phase of assembly election in Manipur covering 22 constituencies on Wednesday.
Amid an elaborate security arrangement and tight vigil, voters in large number are remaining in huge queue in front of the 1151 polling booths to decide on the fate of 98 candidates in the fray.
The polling started at 7 in the morning with a brisk note where many voters started remaining in the queues well ahead of time and the polling is closing at 5 in the afternoon.
The focus of this phase is the Thoubal constituency where rights crusader Irom Sharmila is facing chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh.
Apart from it, the polling is taking place in the Naga dominated areas where the United Naga Council staged economic blockade in protest against the move to create seven new districts.
