With netas in detention, J&K panchayat polls slated for March

Feb 13, 2020 14:50 IST

Panchayat elections for the vacant seats of Jammu and Kashmir will be held in March even as top politicians and 3 former chief minister of the state, are in detention for over 6 months. The panchayat elections will be held in 8 phases in March from the 5th to the 20th. Nearly 60% of the total panchayat seats in Kashmir were vacant even after the last panchayat elections due to lack of participation in the electoral process.
