The Andhra Pradesh government has sought permission from the Election Commission to go ahead with its 'bhoomi puja' for the construction of the capital city on June 6. State chief secretary IYR Krishna Rao has written a letter to chief election commissioner in this regard. AP has also appealed to the EC to allow it to conduct a public meeting on June 8 to mark the occasion of its first year completion in office. The government is waiting for a response from EC as after June 11, there is no auspicious day for the next six months. It is to be mentioned that the 'Model Code of Conduct' has come into force from Tuesday on account of MLC elections.
