Odisha poll officials took a torturous route to keep EVMs safe from Maoists. 36 polling officials in Malkangiri district walked 15 kms braving all odds. They received a message from police about Maoists laying ambush on their return route. An alternative route was quickly chalked out by the police officials. Malkangiri district which comes under Nabarangpur Lok Sabha constituency, recorded 72.5% polling. Nabarangpur MP candidate of Congress, Pradeep Majhi said, “As long as we have such polling officials and security men ready to guard them, no one can subvert democracy. It’s a great day for democracy.”
