Pipili, Apr 22: The by-poll for Pipili constituency scheduled to be held on May 13 has been postponed for three days due to Id-Ul-Fitar, following which the voting will take place on May 16, informed the Chief Electoral Officer today. The vote counting will be done on May 19 with announcement of the results, he added.

Earlier, the by-poll was to be originally conducted on April 17 but was postponed after the demise of Congress candidate Ajit Mangaraj due to Covid 19 on April 14.

Worth mentioning, the seat for the Pipili constituency was lying vacant after the death of MLA Pradeep Maharathy last year.
