Taking cognizance of the complaint filed by Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC), Election Commission of India (ECI) has ordered a re-poll at polling station no. 31 Riphyim Old-III under 37 Tyui Assembly constituency (AC) in Wokha district, though the date has not yet been fixed.
When contacted, additional chief electoral officer (CEO) N Moa Aier confirmed the development and stated that ECI had informed the CEO office on April 20, adding that the matter of finalizing the date and time was under process.
NPCC on April 11 had lodged a complaint with the CEO alleging violation of model of conduct by deputy chief minister Y Patton and demanded re-poll at the polling station.
NPCC communication cell alleged that Patton had violated all election norms by displaying a BJP scarf at the polling station, which was prohibited on polling day, and also claimed that he was caught on camera entering the polling station with seven to eight voter slips and proceeding to cast votes on EVM.
Later on April 14, Congress filed an FIR at Wokha police station against the deputy chief minister for his alleged violation of election model code of conduct and accused him of serious violation of the code.
