46 p.c. turnout in Koppal

Staff Correspondent

Koppal: The Koppal Lok Sabha constituency registered 46 per cent polling on Thursday. Residents of Araginamara Camp, a Burmese rehabilitation centre, had decided to boycott the election in protest against the Government’s failure to identify them under the Scheduled Caste category. However, some of them voted after officials of the Revenue Department assured them that their demand would be taken up.
