Tensions between India and Pakistan in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack will not delay the Lok Sabha elections, says Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora. "The polls will be held on time," said Mr Arora, who had reviewed electoral preparedness in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday. He said that a new notification from the commission requires candidates to give details of their properties abroad, besides those in the country. "The Income Tax department will look into it, and any discrepancies found will be uploaded on the Election Commission's website. Strict action will then be initiated,"
