GMC poll schedule likely to be revised

Guwahati: A mounting pressure from the major political parties is likely to force the state election authority to revise the schedule for the upcoming GMC polls slated for April 19.     

Major political parties have moved state election offices demanding a revised schedule of GMC polls covering 60 wards in the capital city. BJP was the first to have moved the authority, saying the schedule will hamper Bihu celebrations from April 14.

Then Congress staged Dharna in front of Rajiv Bhawn on Saturday, raising the same demand. Party leaders slammed the poll authority, alleging it was an insensitive decision. The main opposition party demanded that the schedule be revised.

Preparations were afoot at the hold polls on April 19 with 7,96,829 voters who would exercise their franchise  in 789 booths. The counting would take place on April 19.
