Panchayat polls: High Court corrected SEC Nimmagadda’s mistake, says Speaker Tammineni
Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly Speaker Tammineni Sitaram said on Tuesday that the High Court has corrected the mistake committed by State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar regarding gram panchayat elections. The High Court on Monday suspended the schedule for panchayat polls announced by the SEC.
Welcoming the High Court’s verdict, Sitaram stated the AP government has to take a decision on holding the elections to gram panchayats. He further mentioned that Ramesh should not have issued a poll schedule for panchayats when the entire country is going through the coronavirus pandemic.
