Patna, Sept 8: Bihar assembly elections is likely to be wrapped up by the end of October, according to a senior officer in the Election Commission. Following this, a new ruling party will be in place in the first week of December.

The Election commission will address a meet at Nirvachan Sadan in Delhi to discuss the date for Bihar assembly elections today.


However, the NDA wants to finish all process of elections before Diwali so that the new government can get enough time for the preparation of Chhat puja, which is the biggest festival of Bihar after six day of Diwali.

The Election Commission had met the Home MInistry last week to discuss the security plan during election in Bihar.

Approximately 6,000 central armed forces (CAPF) will be deployed to look into the security matter during the election, which is 1,500 more than the 2009 assembly elections.

Keeping in mind the Maoist influence in several areas of the state, the government has requested the commission to deploy more security personnel to avoid any unfavorable circumstance.
