Agartala, February 23: Repolling will be held in six polling booth in six Assembly constituencies in Tripura on February, said the Election Commission (EC) on Friday. Fresh voting will be held in Sonamura, Teliamura, Ampinagar and Kadamtala-Kurti, Ampinagar and Sabroom constituencies.
The EC declared election in these booth as ‘void’ after it noticed that the number of electorates didn’t tally with the number of votes polled in four polling stations, the Hindustan Times reported.
In another case, the poll panel claimed that presiding officers ‘unintentionally’ didn’t clear votes of another seven polling stations where votes were cast during mock-poll from the Control Unit.
Demanding a ‘probe’ into alleged violations during the polls, CPI(M) leader Nilotpal Basu had met Chief Election Commission. The CPI(M) leader demanded counting of VVPAT slips in 13 constituencies including Dhanpur from where Chief Minister Manik Sarkar contested.
