Meghalaya and Nagaland voting to take place

Mallikarjun Kharge, the head of the Congress, on Monday urged voters in Shillong and Kohima in the Northeast to offer “revolution an opportunity” during the current voting there. According to Kharge, residents in the two Northeastern states want reformist, welfare-focused administrations.Invite our first-time electors to join in this representative democracy for a positive tomorrow, Kharge wrote in a tweet. Encourage our Naga and Meghalayan neighbors to take a chance on themselves.

At 7 early Monday morning, polling to choose a new administration in the newly Kohima Legislative elections began in 59 divisions.In the 2018 Provincial assembly, the state saw a close to 75% democratic turnout, and a remarkable 90.57% in 2013.

All of the competing parties are to blame another last push to win over supporters as during heated presidential campaign that concluded on Saturday in an attempt to tip the scales in their favour. During the last phase of the election, a number of senior Bharatiya janata party officials, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, campaigned for minor parties.

Like it did in the 2018 Assembly elections, the BJP is running in coalition with Nationalism Democrats Progressive Party (NDPP). When MP Shashi Tharoor spoke at a gathering in Kohima, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge also spoke at an event in Dimapur. The Congress has indeed made suggestions on possible post-election cooperation.

In Nagaland, there are 13,17,632 registered voters, 6,61,489 of them are men and 6,56,143 of whom are women.All throughout state, 2,351 voting places have already been established.

To guarantee a smooth operation of the voting system, the Election Committee reports that 305 units from centralized local militias have been stationed across voting locations including both regions.
