A ssam police personnel on Thursday blocked the road leading to the polling station No. 01 Ladigarh village under 49 Tamlu Assembly constituency by placing trucks to obstruct polling officials from reaching the designated location. 

However, polling was held at a makeshift polling booth in the middle of Yonglok village adjacent to the original local after obtaining permission from the Chief Electoral Officer Nagaland. 

 Assam Police has been blocking polling at Ladigarh polling station. 

The issue has been cropping up every election since 2006 as Assam claim that Ladigarh fell with Sivasagar district. 

Several attempts by the Centre to resolve the dispute have failed. 

In 1988, the Assam government filed a case in Supreme Court seeking its intervention but the final verdict is still pending.

Ladigarh polling station has over 300 voters.
