The Anantnag by-poll has been delayed by two days, officials said on Thursday.

The polls would now be held on June 22 and the counting of votes would take place on June 25, said an official.

The reason behind deferring the polls was not immediately known.

Interestingly, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah had on Wednesday expressed reservations on the polling date.

The day, he said, coincided with the death anniversary of a prominent cleric Qazi Nissar.(Agencies)
