The local body elections in Jammu and Kashmir scheduled to be held in the first week of October is likely to be deferred, sources told NDTV. The decision has come after two major regional parties, the National Conference and Mehbooba Mufti's PDP announced boycott of the local body elections until the Centre makes its position clear on safeguarding Article 35A, a constitutional provision that defines "permanent residents" of the state. Sources said the elections for urban local bodies will be deferred to January.
