Panchayat poll process will not disturb vaccination drive, says Nimmagadda Ramesh in petition
Panchayat poll process will not disturb the coronavirus vaccination drive in the state, said State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar in his petition filed in the AP High Court challenging the single judge’s verdict over suspending the schedule released for holding panchayat elections in February. The petition has come up for hearing before the division bench of the High Court on Monday. The AP government is against holding panchayat elections as the vaccination drive has started. The Central government had already released the schedule for vaccination in AP on Sunday.
