రంజాన్ మాసాన ఎన్నికలా విపక్షాల వాదనలో అర్థం ఉందా||Controversy over polling during Ramadan||

The announcement of the poll schedule is generally taken in stride by most political parties. They focus on finalising alliances, seat-sharing arrangements wherever needed, candidate selection and giving the last push to their poll strategy rather than wasting time and energy in taking on the Election Commission and politicising poll dates. But this time, the Trinamool Congress and Aam Aadmi Party have taken serious exception to the dates, with later phases of the polls coinciding with the Ramzan period. Revered Islamic scholar and Imam of Lucknow Idgah Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali is angry that elections are being held during this period.
