Bharatiya Janata Party Itanagar, Apr 20 (ANI): Repolling is taking place amidst tight security in 13 booths in the Arunachal West Parliamentary constituency on Monday.

Polling here was affected during the first phase on April 16 due to incidents of booth capturing and breaking of Electronic Voting Machines.

While eight of these polling stations are located in the state capital, one is in Doimukh near Itanagar and two each in upper and lower Subansiri Districts respectively.

Arunachal Pradesh has recorded over 50 percent polling in the two parliamentary constituencies of Arunachal East and Arunachal West in the first phase of polling.

However, reports from interior places are yet to reach because of lack of communication facilities.

Last time 56.06 percent polling was recorded in the two constituencies.

Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has informed the Election Commission that it would launch protests if the demand for repoll in three more polling stations in the state capital is not met. (ANI)
