Assembly polls: All arrangements in place for counting in Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland


All arrangements are in place for tomorrow's counting of votes for Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland Assembly elections. 

Tripura went to polls on the 18th of last month, while voting in Meghalaya and Nagaland was held on Tuesday. All the three states have a 60-member Assembly, but polling was held for 59 seats in each state. 

Polling to Charilam (st) seat in Tripura was postponed till the 12th of next month due to the death of a candidate.

Our correspondent reports that security has been tightened across Tripura, particularly in-and-around the counting centres.

In Meghalaya, the election was countermanded in Williamnagar in the wake of the killing of candidate. Chief Electoral Officer FR Kharkonger said, 13 counting centres will be set up in the state. 

He said, elaborate security arrangements have also been made for the counting, for which 37 Returning Officers and 60 Assistant Returning Officers will be deployed.

Nagaland Chief Electoral Abhijit Sinha said, counting will be done in 12 district headquarters. He said, a three-tier security arrangement has been put in place for the process. 

Besides the District Executive Force, Nagaland Armed Police, Indian Reserve Battalion, a Company of Central Armed Police Force have been deployed at each counting centre.
