Congress faults SEC Nimmagadda for issuing notification to panchayat polls
Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Sake Sailajanath faulted State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar for issuing a notification to gram panchayat polls without consulting the political parties. However, he stated that the Congress is ready to face panchayat polls. In a press meet, the APCC chief alleged that Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is implementing the agenda of the BJP in the state. He flayed the AP government for opposing local body elections by citing coronavirus as a reason while expressing willingness to conduct the bypoll to the Tirupati parliamentary constituency.
