Twenty-six nominations, including six by the same candidates on account of error, were filed on Monday, the last day for filing papers.

The Congress has also fielded another candidate from the minority community, Anwar Pasha, who filed his papers on Monday.

The last date for withdrawal of nominations is June 16 and the model code of conduct has come into effect retrospectively from June 3 and will be in force till June 30. Polling will be held between 7 am and 5 pm.
