There were few general verbal complaints received from political parties regarding some incident in 38-Wokha AC during voting on May 28. The complaints were enquired upon by the sector magistrates and found to be baseless.
A DIPR report stated that the entire poll process concluded peacefully without any incident of violence, adding no complaint about polling was received on Samadhan or reported in the local media.
