New Delhi : The Election Commission(EC) on Monday postponed Assembly polls in Punjab to 20 February.

The move followed EC’s meeting with various political parties that urged for postponing elections slated 14 February in view of Guru Ravidas Jayanti.

Lakhs of devotees trip to Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh to celebrate the day owing to which large number of voters would be unable to cast their ballot, the leaders told EC.
