“Representations have been received by the Commission from various parties, social organisations and also issues raised in various media platforms for change of date of poll considering large scale , social engagement on that day which may cause inconvenience to a large number of people, various logistics issues and may lead to reduced voter participation during the poll,” the Election Commission said in a statement.
