Congress object as EC orders repoll in 168 Tripura West polling stations

Tripura Congress have objected to the Election Commission of India’s order on May 7 to conduct repoll in 168 polling stations of Tripura West Lok Sabha constituency, saying that the number of stations undergoing repolls should have been much higher owing to how widespread the alleged rigging was during the election on April 11.

The Congress’s Subal Bhowmick, who recently quit as the BJP’s state vice-president, is pitted against BJP’s Pratima Bhoumik.

The CPI(M), which has held the seat since 1996, has again fielded its sitting MP Sankar Prasad Datta.
