Raipur:  With the announcement of assembly polls in five states including Chhattisgarh, the model code of conduct Friday came into force in the state where a two-phased polling will be held in November.



“With the announcement of poll schedules, district election officers have been directed to implement the model code of conduct,” Chief Electoral Officer Sunil Kujur told reporters Friday evening.

As many as 18 Maoist-affected constituencies of the state's southern region would witness polling in the first phase on November 11, while the rest of the 72 constituencies would go to polls in the second phase on November 19.

“Eighteen constituencies in Bastar, Bijapur, Kondagaon, Sukma, Kondagaon, Kanker and Rajnandgaon will go to polls in the first phase,” Kujur said.
