Officials to discuss J&K Assembly polls with EC

New Delhi: As suspense over the holding of Lok Sabha and Assembly polls simultaneously continues in Jammu and Kashmir, state’s top bureaucrats are scheduled to meet the Election Commission (EC) officials in Delhi to discuss the issue on February 18.

A senior state official said chief secretary BVR Subrahmanyam, J&K chief electoral officer (CEO) Shailendra Kumar and director general of police (DGP) Dilbag Singh would fly to New Delhi on February 18 to meet the EC team.

“Initially, the EC team was scheduled to visit J&K to take stock of the situation before deciding on the assembly elections in the state.

However, it didn’t materialise due to inclement weather conditions in Kashmir. Now instead, a high-level team from the state would discuss the issue with the EC officials in Delhi,” he said.
