AP SEC likely to move High Court over Panchayat polls
State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar may file a petition in the High Court in the next two days seeking permission for conducting the Panchayat elections. With the nod of the High Court, the SEC wants to issue notification for local bodies in a phase manner.
On Wednesday, Ramesh met with Governor Biswa Bhusan Harichandan and complained to him that the AP government was not cooperating to hold the Panchayat elections. He submitted a report to the Governor and informed him coronavirus cases have come down in the state compared to the past.
