Karnataka Assembly Elections: Polling in Karna’s Rajrajeshwari Nagar seat postponed to May 28


New Delhi: The Election Commission today ordered postponement of elections to the Rajrajeshwari Nagar assembly seat in Karnataka saying there is “definite inference” to suggest that efforts were made to induce voters.

Polling in the constituency will now be held on May 28 now and counting will be on May 31. The decision comes days after nearly 10,000 voter identity cards were recovered from a flat in the constituency, leading to a slugfest between the BJP and the Congress.

Karnataka goes to polls tomorrow.
