    NEW DELHI: Assembly polls in J&K and Jharkhand will be held in five phases between November 25 and December 20 and counting of votes will take place on December 23, the Election Commission announced on Saturday.

    Polling in both states will take place on November 25, December 2, 9, 14 and 20, Chief Election Commissioner VS Sampath said at a press conference.

    Bye-elections to three assembly seats in Delhi, which fell vacant after their MLAs resigned following their victories in Lok Sabha polls, will be held on November 25. Brushing aside demands from some quarters, mainly the ruling National Conference, that elections in flood-hit J&K be postponed, Sampath said the recent calamity will have no "special impact" on polls.

    He said post-flood situation, along with other aspects like climate, festivals and law and order situation, have been taken into account while deciding the poll schedule.

    "Except for one political party, most of the political parties (in J&K) were in favour of holding elections on time. They said there is no reason, no justification for delaying the polls. The EC's mandate is to hold elections on time," Sampath said. The current six-year term of assembly of J&K assembly comes to an end on January 16.

    BJP's victory in Jharkhand is beyond doubt. If BJP comes to power in J&K, separatists and secular can bid goodbye to the article 370.

    BJP exposed for trading with defectors, detractors in JK polls: Bhim

    This party has never won more than a handful of seats. That should tell him that the Jammu electorate backs national parties.

    Main rival for BJP in Jammu region is the Congress, which became strong during the Indira wave of 1980s.

    With the Modi wave still going strong, it is the BJP's moment to shine in J&K!
