According to Chief Electoral Officer BDR Tewari, the voter is from Khliehshnong A.


“She says she came from Shillong to represent the third gender community, but as she is still applying for the third gender in the electoral roll, she has to vote in the all male polling station”, Tiwari said.

As per the official data, while two are enrolled in Lumshyiap & Lum Phira under Pynthorumkhrah Assembly constituency, the third is from Phulbari in West Garo Hills.
