Elaborate security for sixth phase of UP Assy polls tomorrow

By 5 pm, Manipur registered an all-time turnout of over 84 per cent in the first phase of the assembly election. Polling stations with defective EVMs functioned long after 3 pm, the official closing time.

¬ďAltogether 1,079 polling stations (out of 1,643) were covered with live web streaming to monitor activities inside polling stations while remaining 564 recorded offline by smartphones, ¬Ē CEO Dewangan added.

Among the districts in valley areas, Imphal East district recorded a voter turnout of 87% while 86.9% in Imphal West district and Bishnupur district recorded 87.8%.

The importance of the eastern Uttar Pradesh in which there are a total of 89 seats which will go to polls in the sixth and seventh phase can be understood from the fact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents the Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi which is scheduled to go to polls on 8 March, in the last phase of polling.

Voters in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and Manipur cast their votes in the ongoing assembly polls on Saturday, with no major incidents of violence being reported by election authorities.

Meanwhile, both BJP and Congress parties are locked in a bitter fight. The first phase of the assembly elections consisted of 38 assembly constituencies spread over five districts. She is contesting the election from the Thoubal constituency. State Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) T Venkentesh told UNI here today that all arrangements for a smooth conduct of the elections have been completed and the polling personnel have started reaching their respective booths.

Polls were held under tight security in the State and according to the statistics of the office of the Chief Electoral Office, over 9,000 security personnel were deployed across the polling stations including State Police and Central Paramilitary Forces (CPMF).

National People's Party (NPP), Trinamool Congress, Nationalist Congress Party, LokJana Shakti, Left parties and Independent candidates are also contesting in the first phase.

Activist-turned-politician Irom Sharmila, too, cast her vote in Imphal's Khurai after 20 years. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had accused the BJP of "compromising with the territorial integrity" of Manipur.

The districts where polling is going on in the sixth phase are Mau, Gorakhpur, Maharajganj, Kushinagar, Deoria, Azamgarh and Ballia. Notably, elections are being held in two phases in this state. The assembly elections in Manipur Phase 1 were largely peaceful. Azamgarh Lok Sabha constituency has 10 assembly seats, of which SP had won nine in 2012, but this time Mulayam has not addressed a single meeting in his parliamentary constituency.

While BSP has fielded candidates on all 49 seats, SP is contesting 40 seats and Congress 9 seats under an alliance.
