Imphal, May 22: All the 60 polling stations at Khundrakpam and Khangabok Assembly constituencies will be considered 'sensitive' and adequate central para-military forces posted for the June 2 by-election, Manipur CEO R R Rashmi today said.

The Khangabok seat in Thoubal district was vacated by Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh as he won in two constituencies. By-poll to Khundrakpam constituency at Imphal East was necessitated by the death of NCP MLA Th Navakumar.
