New Delhi, Oct 18 (IBNS): A team of Election Commission (EC) officials is likely to visit flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday to review the situation whether Assembly polls can be conducted in the state on time.

The official of the poll panel is also scheduled to meet district-level officers and representatives of political parties before taking a decision on the issue.

Over 270 people were killed and thousands rendered homeless in a flood that affected large swathes of south Kashmir and Srinagar city crippling infrastructure in several parts of the state.

Earlier, the ruling National Conference had said the polls should be deferred to next year owing to the post flood situation.

A new government has to be in place in Jammu and Kashmir before January 19 as the six-year term of the Assembly ends.
