Election date may be announced today in five states including west Bengal, Assam


The dates for the upcoming assembly elections in five states may be announced on Friday. For this, the Election Commission has called a press conference at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi at 4.30 pm today. It is believed that in this press conference, the commission can announce election dates in four states and one union territory. Explain that elections are to be held in West Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. One of the five states is the BJP government in Assam. At the same time, President’s rule has been imposed in Puducherry due to the fall of the Congress government last week.

According to the sources in the commission, elections can be held in 6 to 8 phases in West Bengal, while in Assam, voting can be held in three phases. In Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, there is a possibility of voting in a single phase. Counting of four states and union territories will be done on the same day. The process of assembly formation will be completed before May 1.

Board exams are scheduled to be held from May 4. In view of this, the commission plans to complete the election program before May 1. The Commission has made the most visits to these five states (West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Kerala). A team is still on a tour of West Bengal.

Election in Tamil Nadu and Kerala is the biggest challenge before the Election Commission in view of the rising case of Corona virus. However, the Election Commission says that it has taken all kinds of measures keeping in mind the Corona Protocol. The security forces have also been fully arranged. It is believed that due to Korana, voting time may increase.
