|No more delays in the BBMP election Polls in Karnataka. The Government has decided to go on Polls on March 28th for the BBMP as per directive from high Court.|
As per the State Election Commission, the BBMP Election will start on March on 28th and counting of votes will be on April 5th. We need to wait and watch if BJP would like to approach the Supreme Court for the extension of the BBMP Polls till mid April due to the schedule of Examinations.
There may be one more roadblock for the Government as the March 28th is Mahavir Jayanthi one of the biggest festivals of Jain Community. They have filed a petition with State Election Commission to reconsider the date.
