The list will be released to the public and political parties after a discussion on how to prepare the voter list and its parts. And after their introduction, the list will be updated.

BJP is already working hard to
win the upcoming local body elections in the state, especially the BJP has started searching for a winning face for the Congress, as it was difficult for the BJP to win the 2015 elections. The Congress got more seats in panchayats and palikas i.e. in rural areas, so the BJP has now increased its contacts with local Congress leaders.
