Guwahati: Assam Social Welfare Minister Akon Bora received a jolt when the Gauhati High Court Wednesday ordered repoll in two booths of 52 Dispur assembly constituency from where he had won as a Congress candidate in the 2006 polls.

Justice IA Ansari, delivering the judgement on a petition filed by former AGP Minister Atul Bora, directed the election authorities to hold polls at the earliest for the two polling stations--No 196 and 164.
The AGP candidate who had contested against the social welfare minister, had lost the polls by a mere 813 votes and had filed a petition with the High Court alleging election malpractices by the concerned authorities in the two polling stations.
The social welfare minister had polled 52,461 votes while the AGP candidate polled 51,648 votes.
