Assam registers highest voter turnout in country in third phase LS polls
By Nenow 26-Apr-2019
The polling percentage of 85.11 per cent in these four constituencies – Dhubri, Barpeta, Kokrajhar and Guwahati – was also the highest among all the states that went to polls in the third phase.
Reports stated that this poll percentage is the highest among 13 states and two union territories which went to the polls on April 23 last. The overall polling percentage in the third phase was 66 per cent.
In the above four Lok Sabha constituencies, Muslim immigrant voters of East Bengal origin are present in huge numbers.
Five constituencies in Assam’s tea belt went to polls in the first phase and five in the second phase.
It is in these constituencies that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is facing a formidable resistance.
Political pundits attribute the “extraordinary turnout” to the Citizenship Bill.
Much before the elections were announced, the Modi government at the Centre “worked overtime” to get the Bill passed in Parliament.
