Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir will probably not be held in June according to a top government source on Friday. The Election Commission could mostly postpone the date to November.
For delaying the elections, the government has reportedly cited the Ramzan Yatra, tourism season and Bakarwal migration.
JK has been under President's rule since the expiry of six months of Governor's rule in December. The 87-member state assembly fell into a political crisis after the Bharatiya Janata Party withdrew support to the PDP government led by Mehbooba Mufti in June 2018.
Earlier in March, Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora had stated that a three-member panel of observers will be assessing the security situation for holding assembly election later.
