HC reserves verdict on petition filed to cancel SEC notification for municipal polls
The High Court on Tuesday reserved verdict on petition filed to cancel notification issued by the State Election Commission (SEC) for holding elections to 75 municipalities, 12 municipal corporations and Nagara Panchayats. Petitioners argued that elections should be conducted as per new voter list.
The High Court may deliver verdict either on Wednesday or Thursday as the SEC is geared up to conduct elections to urban local bodies on March 10. Meanwhile, the SEC has declared holiday on March 10 in areas where there is a polling. Elaborate security arrangements for peaceful conduct of elections.
