Odisha Assembly election being held in four phases

This year, Odisha not only votes for 21 Lok Sabha constituencies, but also the 147 Assembly seats that fall under them in four phases. The first two phases were held on 11 April and 18 April. The last phase will be held on 29 April, with the result on 23 May.


08:25:34 AM

42 Assembly seats in the fray

Besides polling in Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Puri, Sambalpur, Keonjhar and Dhenkanal Lok Sabha seats, 42 Assembly segments that fall under these constituencies in Odisha will also vote on Tuesday under tight security.


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a public meeting at Barua Ground in Kendrapara, followed by another meeting in Balasore, regions that vote in Phase 4 of the polls.

Voting has begun for the 42 Assembly segments that fall under six Lok Sabha seats in Odisha. Chief Electoral Officer Surendra Kumar said 3,186 booths in Odisha had been marked ‘critical’. As many as 600 CAPF personnel have been deployed to ensure security during the polls. Phase 3 has 68,422 polling officers and 395 zonal magistrates handling the elections.

Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who hails from Odisha, is virtually camping in the state as the BJP is making all out efforts to put up a formidable challenge to the BJD, which has been in power since 2000.

Star campaigners of the Congress were absent in this phase and electioneering was steered by leaders like Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) president Niranjan Patnaik.

For the ruling BJD, party president and state Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, seeking a fifth term this time, was at the centre stage undertaking extensive tours of the poll-bound areas and holding roadshows.

While the Congress and the BJP accused the BJD of having failed to ensure development in the state despite being in power for 19 years, the ruling party charged the two parties with adopting a step-motherly approach towards Odisha and ignoring its genuine demands.
