UT Correspondent | Ukhrul, Aug 25: The Manipur State Election Commission has begun its preparation for the upcoming Autonomous District Council (ADC) election scheduled for mid November 2020.

The ADC election for the 6 hill districts Churachandpur, Chandel, Senapati, Sadar Hills, Tangmenglong and Ukhrul was to be held before June this year.
