AP SEC writes letter to CS asking not to go ahead with reorganisation of districts
AP State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar wrote a letter to Chief Secretary Nilam Sawhney asking her not to go ahead with reorganisation of districts. He stated that elections to local bodies will be held based on 13 districts. The AP government wants to create 26 or more districts taking all aspects into consideration.
Already, several committees were formed by the state government for the creation of new districts. In the letter, the SEC stated that technical issues will arise for conducting elections to the Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituencies (ZPTCs).
