Tamil Nadu polls won’t be postponed

The Madras High Court on Wednesday ruled that the Tamil Nadu assembly elections cannot be postponed due to school exams but laid down conditions so that students are not affected. Deciding on two petitions seeking postponement of the April 13 polls, the court held that teachers should not be involved in election duty till the exams get over. It also banned campaigning within 200 meters of schools and ordered that school buses and vans should not be hindered during campaigning. The secondary and higher secondary exams in the state started in March and will continue till the second week of April.
