The Congress today reiterated that repolling should be held in all 1,344 polling stations where more than 90 per cent votes were cast on April 9 and not just in two booths.

Reacting to the Election Commission's order to conduct repolling in two polling stations under 33 Suruhoto Assembly constituency in Zunheboto district, Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) general secretary Medokul Sophie said Congress strongly reasserts that repolling should be held in all 1,344 polling stations where polling percentage had exceeded 90 per cent.

In a representation submitted to the EC on April 25 the party had highlighted that massive malpractice marred the April 9 polls in the state, because of which over 1,300 polling stations had exceeded 90 per cent voting.

Further, the NPCC demanded repolling at 49 Ladigarh under Tamlu Assembly constituency at Ladigarh government primary school.
