30 pc polling in Dhemaji till noon

Guwahati, Apr 09 (UNI) Around 30 per cent voters had cast their votes till noon in the 273 booths in the byelection for Dhemaji assembly constituency.
The poll is being seen as a prestige fight for ruling BJP in the state.
Around 2,19,751 electorates at a tribal dominated assembly constituency are deciding the fate of five popular political leaders in the election.
Electorates—new and old alike are lined up in front of the 273 booths to exercise their franchise to elect the candidate of their choice who would represent them from Dhemaji in the state legislative assembly.
There were also reports of EVM malfunctioning in several booths.
Voting is expected to be a massive one in view of the serpentine queues of the electorates in all the booths from 0700 hrs.
The voting would continue till 1600 hrs amid tight security.
Five candidates are in the fray but the keen contest seems to have confined to Dr Ranuj Pegu from BJP and Babul Sonowal from Congress, both tribal leaders.
The assembly bypolls was necessitated after Mr Pradan Baruah, a BJP legislator, was elected to the Lok Sabha after Sarbananda Sonowal, who took over as Assam Chief Minister, stepped down from his position.
