Telangana HC refuses to hear lunch motion petition on GHMC elections
For the second time, Telangana High Court has declined to hear lunch motion petition on elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). The petitioner mentioned in his plea that the State Election Commission (SEC) had released the schedule for the GHMC polls without the rule of rotation in the divisions.
It is against the law to conduct the GHMC polls without the rule of rotation in reserved wards, the petitioner said. However, Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan has declined to entertain the petition. The Supreme Court had passed a verdict to follow the rule of rotation in reserved divisions.
