Manipur: Record voter turnout in 2nd phase

Manipur election officials said over 86% voting was recorded till 4 pm with figures of remote areas yet to come in. The final tallying of all votes could well take the poll percentage beyond 90.

MANIPUR POLLSVoting in Manipur for the second phase proceeded at a brisk pace throughout the day on Wednesday as voters enthusiastically came out to cast their votes to elect a new government. Polling for 22 seats in 1,151 booths was carried out amidst tight security.

The enthusiasm among voters was indeed commendable as some even arrived in wheelchairs to cast their votes. There was even an instance of an elderly woman of 90 queuing up to cast her vote. The result was a record breaking voter turnout.

The EC had put in place tight security arrangements with nearly 280 companies of central forces positioned across polling stations for smooth conduct of the poll process.

The fate of 98 candidates was sealed in the ballot boxes. Big names in the fray were CM O Ibobi Singh, Deputy Cm M Gaikhangam, human rights activist Irom Chanu Sharmila among others.

The incumbent Cm is in a fierce contest with Irom Sharmila in his traditional bastion of Thoubal while the BJP has fielded L Basant Singh from this seat.

The elections this time are being seen as a contest between the ruling Congress and the BJP which has made an all out bid for power.

Now all eyes are on the March 11 when results will be declared.
