Andhra Pradesh reports incident free re-polling

Estimated turnout at 80 percent


The re-polling conducted in 63 polling stations across the State for 25 Assembly segments and 16 Parliament Constituencies on Sunday was incident free. However, the situation was tense at some places like Pulivendula following scuffles between TDP and Congress workers. The Election Authorities have a sigh of relief on the peaceful completion of polling. According to sources, the average turnout of voters is estimated to 80 percent.

The Election Commission relieved a police officer of election duty in Anatapur district following a complaint by TDP leaders that he was biased towards the Congress. The re polling was necessitated as electronic voting machines were destroyed by miscreants at some places and the machines developed technical snags at others when the second phase of polling was held in 10 districts.

Chief Electoral Officer, IV Subba Rao said four of the 28 persons including polling officials and agents had been arrested as ordered by the Election Commission. He expressed his happiness on the peaceful completion of the elections in the State. He said that huge exercise as closed and the EVMs had been kept in strong rooms under the safe custody of Central forces.
