New Delhi: After the abolition of Section 370 from Jammu and Kashmir by the Central Government, the state was divided into a Union Territory. Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were made two separate union territories. Also, new delimitation was announced in Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly. With this, the discussion started about whether the elections in the state would be held along with the elections in the three states this year or afterwards.
