Altogether19, 21,374 electorates are expected to cast their votes in 2345 booths to elect the Lok Sabha member out of 18 candidates in the fray.

The voting will continue till 5 in the evening. In some places, the polling officials would find it difficult to complete the process even by 5 in the evening in view of the huge line of voters who have been waiting hours after hours to exercise their franchise.

It will be a fight between sitting BJP MP Bijoya Chakraborty and Congress candidate Manas Bora. AGP’s Birendra Prasad Baishya is also likely to give a tough fight in the constituency.

Counting will take place on May 16.
