New Delhi: India’s election office is set to announce voting dates for the upcoming general election at 3.30 pm on Monday, an election commission official said.
The voting process is expected to be staggered over several weeks to allow security forces to fan out across the country to guard about 670 million voters.
The main battle will be between the Congress-led coalition and the leading opposition bloc, headed by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
