Srinagar, September 12:

The Jammu and Kashmir Government will issue notification for the holding of the Urban Local Bodies polls  this evening or by tomorrow morning, according to  highly placed sources in the Government.

There is absolutely no question of  postponing the polls . The notification will be issued  by Wednesday evening or latest by Thursday, We shall be issuing notification  by this evening or tomorrow ,” the highly placed source  who has the access to the  state’s decision making  State Administrative Council told J K News Today , terming the reports  suggesting postponement of the polls as “ baseless.”

The speculation about the postponement of the polls gained credence following the announcement of the non-participation in these polls  by National Conference and PDP  because of the  Government’s ambiguous stand on the  Article 35 A in the Supreme Court , where it has been challenged by an NGO.

The BJP , on the other hand , is very keen to contest the polls.
