The high-stakes battle for Bihar, essentially between BJP and the 'Janata Parivar' is likely to be fought in a multi-phased election to the Assembly, probably between late October and early November, sandwiched between festivals.
The Commission is said to be looking at a window before festival season starts late October or to squeeze some phases between Dussehra and Diwali for holding the polls. Though a final decision is yet to be taken on the number of phases, it is likely to between four or five.
