Looks like a petition filed in the high court finally worked. State Election Commission has cancelled ZP election of 22nd March, but has not accepted the new proposed date of 24th March. And the exams of students from Std ninth to Twelfth have also been cancelled. Two major threats to the spread of corona virus have finally been taken care of.
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.
