"Voting has been absolutely peaceful and smooth. Conducive weather helped people to exercise their franchise without any trouble," Kundra told the media.
The voters will decide the electoral fortunes of six candidates, including independent aspirant Lalthlamuani, who is the first woman candidate contesting parliamentary polls in the northeastern state.
The parliamentary constituency in Mizoram, reserved for Scheduled Tribes, is set for a multi-cornered contest.
However, according to political analysts, the main contest is between the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) candidate C. Lalrosanga and Lalnghingolva Hmar, jointly fielded by the opposition Congress and the ZPM.
Lal Hriatrenga Chhangte, another independent, makes it a six-cornered contest.
Abeda Nanda Baidya, Sub-Divisional Magistrate of northern Tripura's Kanchanpur sub-division where some of the refugee camps are located, told IANS over phone that around 3,000 of the 12,081 Reang tribal refugee voters went to Kanhmun in Mizoram to cast their votes while others were reluctant to do so.
The 12,081 tribal refugee voters are among the 35,000 emigrants living in the seven relief camps in northern Tripura for the past 22 years after they fled their homes in three Mizoram districts in the wake of communal tension.
