Election of 18 Municipal Councils and 8 Nagar Panchayats in four valley districts of the state has started from 7 am today.
For the election of 279 councilors, ruling Congress has fielded its candidates in 199 seats and BJP in 181 seats.
In connection with today’s election, source received by our staff reporter, arguments between the Councilor candidates from Independent party, Th Shyamo and Athokpam Manjuri Devi of Thoubal Municipal Council, ward no 5 occurred yesterday  night over some ritual ceremony to be performed inside the polling station before the voting begins.
Meanwhile, an unconfirmed news is being reported that the Sitting MLA of Bishnupur AC came to the Ningthoukhong ward no 2 polling station and after evacuating the voters and securing the station with his personal security escorts, stamped the remaining ballot papers. The local have started an agitation against the incident and are demanding repoll of the station and is preventing the ballot boxes from being taken away.
