New Delhi: Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi and Election Commissioner Achal Kumar are likely to visit Patna next week to review the preparations for the upcoming Assembly poll elections in the state.

The visit is scheduled to take place on August 7-8.

The central observers, once deployed, will be assisted by central paramilitary troops in certain areas as part of the EC's efforts to curb the use of black money in the poll process and ensure a level-playing field for all.

While 67 constituencies, over 25 per cent of the total 243, have been categorised as 'sensitive', 75 others have been marked as 'slightly sensitive'.

The state is expected to go for a multi-phased election, probably between late October and early November.
