Preparations have begun for the panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh. Although the State Election Commission has not yet announced the date of the election, it has directed the preparation of the voter list. Tuesday’s detailed program has been released. According to the program published by State Election Commissioner Manoj Kumar, booth label officers (BLOs) will go door-to-door from next October to verify the voter list.
Meanwhile, all the district heads of Agra division, BDC and JI panchayat members will not be able to contest 90 per cent. This is due to compliance with the Election Commission rules. These may be prohibited for non-submission of election expenses. In view of this, people who are willing to contest the elections have started circulating in the Secretariat.
In fact, three-phase elections will be held in November-December this year, but during the Corona period, it is currently behind schedule. Now these elections may be held in April-May next year.
