Stage set for 2nd and final phase Assam polls


    GUWAHATI, April 10: The stage is all set for the second and final phase of polls in 64 Assembly constituencies in 14 districts of Central and Lower Assam amidst tight security tomorrow.

    Polling will be held amidst tight security as violence was feared in the four Bodo Territorial Administered Districts (BTAD) where the Ranjan Daimary led anti-talk faction of NDFB had indulged in few pre-poll incidents, official sources said.

    Altogether 346 companies of central paramilitary forces have been deployed for the polls with 65 to 75 per cent of polling stations, including most of the critical ones to be covered by these security personnel and rest by police.

    Polling personnel assigned to far-flung areas have already left for their stations since Friday last and those near to the district or sub-divisional headquarters were scheduled to leave by this evening, official sources said.
