Following the verdict of AP High Court, Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar took over as AP State Election Commissioner post. Ramesh Kumar said that he is continuing his post from today, i.e., on May 29th. In the position of the commissioner level after re-instating by the High Court, AP SEC has written letters to Collectors, Municipal Commissioners, District Parishad CEOs.
It was a significant setback to the YSRCP government, as the Andhra Pradesh High Court struck down the ordinance issued by the state government to sack Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar as the SEC pertaining to the postponement of the local body polls. The High Court has ordered the reinstatement of Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar as the State Election Commissioner (SEC).
