ECI to seek further inputs on JK assembly polls
Srinagar: As the suspense over holding of Assembly polls continues in Jammu and Kashmir, the Election Commission is once again set to take further inputs from all necessary quarters, on how early the Assembly polls can be held in the state.
Sources in the election commission said that Election Commission is monitoring regularly and on a real-time basis the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and will soon take a decision on holding Assembly elections in the state.
“In New Delhi today, the commission is taking inputs from all necessary quarters including the security establishments, and will soon take its final decision in this regard,” sources said.
There were reports that Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections are likely to take place in June ahead of the annual Amarnath Yatra beginning July 1. However, the Governor’s administration here on Friday opposed the proposal to hold assembly elections in June and instead urged the Election Commission of India (ECI) to hold elections in November.
