However, The Poll Panel made it clear that Jammu and Kashmir will not vote for electing its state government along with General Elections. The Poll Panel who had earlier this month visited the valley cited security reasons behind not clubbing State Polls with Lok Sabha Polls. “Based on input, a constraint of availability of central forces&other logistics, a requirement of forces for the security of candidates in wake of recent violence & keeping other challenges in mind EC has decided at this stage to announce the only schedule of Parliament election in J&K,” CEC Sunil Arora said as quoted by ANI.

Andhra Prades, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand are among states that will go the polls in a single phase. Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal will go to polls in seven phases while in Jammu and Kashmir polls will be in five phases. The Central States like Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Odisha will have General Polls in 4 phases.
