Tough task for state eC in flood-affected areas

‘Special arrangements have been made for polling booths in the flood-affected areas. Schools will be used for polling booths and additional manpower will be deployed in these areas,’ chief electoral officer Radha Raturi said. According to state election commission records, over 67,86,000 voters will exercise their franchise in over 10062 booths in the five constituencies in the state.
