The Election Commission of India Sunday announced the schedule for the general elections according to which eight districts in western Uttar Pradesh including Muzaffarnagar will go to polls in first phase on April 11.
The step was taken after the Model Code of Conduct kicked in Sunday with the announcement of the poll schedule.
Among other restrictions, the model code bars the government from announcing any policy move that may impact voters' decision.
He said 915 polling centres and 2,167 booths have been established in the constituency.
