Congress leader Kapil Sibal's tweet suggested that the delay may have something to do with the BJP's "announcing some sops". "Increased the size of the screen on VVPAT machines to 10 cm by 5.6 cm for the voters to able to verify their vote easily", CEC A K Jyoti said. "When there was a Congress government at the Centre, the state BJP could always run a campaign blaming Delhi for problems of Gujarat - something it can no longer do", the leader said.

Announcing the schedule, Chief Election Commissioner AK Joti said filing of nominations will open on October 16 and the last date will be October 23. For example, it announced the polling dates for elections to Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand on January 4.

The Election Commission of India have announced that the model code of conduct had been enforced in Himachal Pradesh.

A single-phase election will be held for the 68 Assembly constituencies of Himachal Pradesh on November 9, while the counting of votes will be taken up on December 18, Chief Election Commissioner Achal Kumar Joti said.

The EC on Thursday announced the poll schedule for Himachal Pradesh whose assembly's term will end on January 7 next year, but withheld the schedule for Gujarat whose assembly's term ends on January 22 next year.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his visits to poll bound state, Gujarat, had announced slew of sops: Bullet train project - from Ahmedabad to Mumbai- inauguration of Sardar Sarovar Dam on Narmada river, stone of a sea-link bridge between coastal town of Okha and Bet Dwarka Island, and inauguration of Udhna-Jaynagar Antyodaya Express. "In 2012, Gujarat's first phase polling was in 17/11/2012, while Himachal Pradesh voted on 10/10/2012". The counting was done on December 20. The CEC said the entire election scheduled should not exceed 46-days. "We have to be reasonable to state governments", Joti said. Dalits and traders are too angry with the party. "The term of the Assembly in both states are expiring on different dates. With an aim to ensure that voters do not get influenced, polls in Gujarat will be held before the results of Himachal elections", BJP spokesman Zafar Islam told NewsClick. He has demanded the EC should explain its decision to the people of India. Secondly, if at all that was the intent as alleged, the entire thing could have been preponed. "It is the Congress which has this kind of mindset and always tries to get undue advantage", he added.
