45% polling booths in Gujarat sensitive

DNAHM117278 | 12/7/2017 | Author : Chintan Acharya | WC :443 | City-Ahmedabad



Of the 50,128 polling booths across the state, more than 45 per cent of the polling stations have been identified as 'sensitive' or 'vulnerable'-- a 15 per cent rise when compared to the 2012 polls. The assessment was the result of the detailed reports submitted by the district authorities ahead of the hotly-anticipated state elections. Against the 44,500 polling stations in the 2012 elections, 30 per cent were identified as sensitive, while this time, the number is up to 45 per cent, even as the Gujarat government is facing pressure due to the ongoing agitation, sources said. Polls in Gujarat will be held in two phases -- on December 9 and 14 -- while the results will be announced on December 18.
