BREAKING: Punjab to vote on February 20 instead of February 14, as originally scheduled by the Election Commission of India. As the election dates hindered the celebrations of Sant Ravidas Jayanti, it was decided to postpone the Punjab elections 2022 dates. The present Chief Minister of Punjab, Charanjit Singh Channi also raised the issue to defer election dates due to Sant Ravidas Jayanti.
After many political parties, including Bhartiya Janta Party, INC and mores stated that Punjab Elections 2022 dates are coinciding with the celebration of Sant Ravidas Jayanti, the Election Commission of India decided to change the Punjab ELection dates from 14 February to 20 February.
