Breaking News! J&K Panchayat Polls Called Off, Here’s What We Know So Far

The panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir have been called off, a senior Home Ministry official said. They have been deferred indefinitely due to the prevailing “security situation” in the Kashmir Valley, the official said.

Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) has threatened to pour acid in the eyes of people who participate in the electoral process.

Based on the State government’s request, the Centre had mobilised around 40,000 central armed police forces (CAPF) and put them on standby.

“It’s unlikely that the elections will be held anytime soon. After committing to it earlier, the State government does not want an election now,” said a senior Home Ministry official.
