NDA to move EC on Bihar polls

May 25, 2005 11:37 IST

The National Democratic Alliance will on Wednesday move the Election Commission, protesting against what it described as the United Progressive Alliance government's "attempts to interfere" in democratic process.

A delegation led by chief ministerial candidate Nitish Kumar would also demand early polls in the state during a meeting with the Election Commission, NDA sources said.

The opposition alliance has taken exception to Union Law Minister H R Bhardwaj's statement on Tuesday that the earliest the polls could be held in the state was in September.
