After prime minister Modi announced in his national address that 22nd March would be observed as Janata Curfew, Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant had a meeting with SEC late night and decided to postpone ZP election on 24th March. He confirmed it on Friday morning while talking to media. He also said the exams from Std ninth to Twelfth are also cancelled.
But things changed by evening, when government was told to file affidavit on ZP election by the court and the preparations done to control the threat of corona virus. Accordingly, State Election Commissioner R K Srivastava said the elections are postponed indefinitely. New date would be announced later.
A Ponjekar citizen Keneth Silveira meantime filed a petition before the high court, seeking postponement of ZP election in view of threat of corona virus.
Many political party leaders also welcomed the decision of elections being postponed.
