Patna: Assembly elections in Bihar, where BJP is set for a battle against a united Janata Parivar, are likely to be held sometime in September-October. Extensive central forces and a reworked expenditure monitoring system will be deployed to curb money and muscle power.
The electoral rolls will be ready on July 31, Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi said, terming the polls in Bihar as “mother of all elections”, PTI reported.
Going by precedents, the election timings would be somewhere in September or October, he said, adding they are yet to begin the process of finalising a schedule. The term of the current Assembly ends in November.
