57% turnout in CMC polls


OST Bureau
Cuttack, Feb 6:


Voters in the Millennium City have shown greater enthusiasm for the Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) elections today than their counterparts did during the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls a month ago.

Preliminary reports suggest about 57 percent voters exercised their franchise in the CMC polls, 9 per cent more than the voting recorded in the BMC polls on January 8.

“There was no report of any untoward incident during the polls which began at 8 am and continued till 5 pm”, said CMC Election Officer Laxmidhar Mohanty.

Elaborate security arrangements were made for smooth conduct of the polls.
