NEW DELHI, Aug 22: As it gears up to hold assembly polls in five states, the Election Commission is
likely to visit Chhattisgarh for two days beginning August 24, sources said on Tuesday.
The Commission, led by Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar, is likely to visit Mizoram next,

Rajasthan in October-November.
