Visakhapatnam, April 2
With the process for ZPTC and MPTC elections being set in motion by the State Election Commission (SEC), the district administration is gearing up for the smooth conduct of the polls on April 8.
In Visakhapatnam district, as many as 39 ZPTCs and 651 MPTCs will be going to polls.
It may be recalled here that notification for the elections was issued in March last, but could not be held as scheduled due to rise in the corona cases. Now the SEC decided to continue the process where it was stopped.
The TDP, BJP, and Jana Sena, which have been demanding issue of fresh notification, skipped the all-party meeting convened by the SEC on Friday.
Over 17.80 lakh voters will exercise their franchise in the elections.
