Local body polls: CS Nilam Sawhney meets SEC Nimmagadda Ramesh
Chief Secretary (CS) Nilam Sawhney on Wednesday met State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar to discuss the possibilities of holding elections to local bodies in the wake of the novel and deadly coronavirus. The report submitted by the CS to the SEC will become crucial in taking the decision on local body polls. The YSRCP skipped the all-party meeting faulting the SEC for convening the meeting with political parties without first consulting the AP government. Several ministers have openly expressed that conducting local body polls is not possible as a second coronavirus wave is expected in November and December.
