What do you mean "not working as usually"? A query written like that
will *never* work. That's not how you do date arithmetic in MySQL.
(That is, MySQL will calculate an answer, but it's not going to be what you
seem to expect.)
Try TO_DAYS(NOW()) - TO_DAYS(summitted_date) to get the difference between
dates in days.
