HC adjourns hearing on AP govt’s petition to stay on panchayat polls
The High Court adjourned the hearing on the AP government’s petition to stay on panchayat elections for Friday. The government lawyer argued in the High Court that the State Election Commission (SEC) had issued election proceedings without consulting the AP government. He brought to the notice of the High Court that thousands died due to coronavirus in AP and pointed out that the Central agencies had warned of a second wave in the winter season. The SEC informed the High Court as to why only the AP government is opposing elections when other states are conducting polls.
