Election Commission defers polls of Jangipur, Samserganj and Pipli

Keeping in view the curbs imposed by the national and state-level disaster management authorities for surging Covid cases, the Election Commission has deferred the polls to Jangipur and Samserganj assembly seats in West Bengal and Pipli assembly seat of Odisha.

The three polls were adjourned earlier on account of the death of the contesting candidates belonging to recognized political parties and were supposed to be held on May 16. The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) has also been lifted in all three seats with immediate effect and will be in operation from the next date of notification. Watch out the video for more information.
