The election canvassing is coming to an end on Thursday, February 21 at 4:00 pm in Meghalaya and Nagaland. 2013 general election to elect the 9th Assembly on February 23 is considered as one of the most uninteresting election campaigns so far in Meghalaya. Few of the constituencies even failed to organize public meetings keeping all the contesting candidates in one common platform. The iron fist and microscopic eyes of the State Election Commissioner are keeping all the polling agents on the toes. Even the traders hoping to do bulk business by selling various parties flags, badges, caps, mobile covers and other accessories are re-packing the products due to low business turnout. Most political parties are working on tight budgets officially, while the unofficial expenditure has no boundaries even in the border areas.
