The polling will take place Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., an official from the office of Orissa’s chief electoral officer told IANS.

“Out of the 25 voting centres that go to poll, 22 are in the Nabarangpur parliamentary constituency, two in Puri and one in Cuttack,” the official said adding that adequate security arrangements have been made for fresh polling.
