Political parties meet EC observers in Jammu, reiterate demand for simultaneous polls

Representatives of various political parties met the three-member team of special observers, appointed by the Election Commission (EC), here on Friday and reiterated the demand for holding Assembly elections and Lok Sabha polls simultaneously in Jammu and Kashmir. The three observers -- Noor Mohammad, Vinod Zutshi and A S Gill, appointed to suggest when Assembly elections can be held in the northern state, reached Jammu from Srinagar on the second leg of their visit. Representatives of different political parties met the observers separately and discussed the timing of the Assembly elections, an official said. He said the special observers will be holding a meeting with the district development commissioners and senior superintendents of police later in the day to get their feedback. We sought a review of the Election Commission s decision to defer the Assembly elections as all parties in the state are on the same page for simultaneous polls to provide an opportunity to the people .
