New Delhi: The Election Commission Saturday announced dates for the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and Telangana. With the announcement of the poll dates by the ECI, the Model Code of Conduct has come into force with immediate effect.

Polling in Rajasthan and Telangana will be held on 7 December, announced Chief Election Commissioner (CEO) OP Rawat.
