The full bench of the Central Election Commission led by Chief Election Commissioner S.Y. Qureshi will visit Assam later this week to oversee the state’s preparedness for the upcoming assembly elections, an official said Monday.
The two-day visit comes in the face of both the ruling Congress party and the opposition Asom Gana Parishad Monday demanding that polls be held before Bohag Bihu, the Assamese New Year, beginning April 14.
“The full bench of the Election Commission will arrive Friday and will hold discussions with political parties, civil and police officials, non-political groups and even principals of schools and colleges,” Mukesh Sahu, a state election official, said. Elections to the 126-member state legislature are due before May.
Meanwhile, both the ruling Congress party and main opposition Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) Monday demanded elections be held before Bohag Bihu.
