Imphal, February 8 (NNN):  Around 300 votes were allegedly cast by illegal means in Keirao constituency of Imphal East district in the recent polls to the Manipur assembly, and that also in the presence of a single polling agent of a particular party. The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) has been requested for re-poll in five booths under the constituency.
Md. Wahidur Rahman, the election agent of Indian National Congress (INC) candidate Md. Allauddin Khan who contested the polls from 6-Keirao constituency, told a press meet at the Manipur Press Club here on Wednesday that he has requested the State CEO Lawmkunga to take up necessary action against those individuals who indulged in poll rigging in 6-Keirao constituency’s five booths.
