No Assembly Polls In J&K, Lok Sabha In 5 Phases

Only Lok Sabha polls in Jammu and Kashmir

While the first phase polls to Assembly and Lok Sabha seats in constituencies of Kalahandi, Nabarangpur, Berhampur and Koraput will be held on April 11, the second phase elections will be held in Bargarh, Sundergarh, Bolangir, Kandhamal and Aska constituencies on April 18.

The J & K assembly's six-year term was to end on March 16, 2021, but it got dissolved after a ruling coalition between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fell apart.

The Election Commission on March 10 imposed "model code of conduct" with immediate effect for the Lok Sabha elections and announced that "voter verifiable paper audit trail" will be used in all polling stations this time. The EC directed Gujarat's Chief Election Officer BB Swain to file an FIR against channels in the state that telecast Gandhi's interview. Polling will be held on April 11, but the counting of votes will take place only on May 23.

Sources informed that Election Commission has announced a Press Conference at 5 pm on March 10 at Vigyan Bhawan, Plenary Hall located at Rajpath, New Delhi where it is believed that the dates of the election will be announced.
