The Election Commission of India on Monday said the upcoming Assembly elections in Punjab have been postponed by six days. Voting will be done on February 20, instead of the originally decided date of February 14. The EC's decision came after prominent leaders from several political parties requested the poll panel to defer the voting in view of a major Sikh festival.
