Will involve in panchayat polls only after vaccination: Bopparaju Venkateswarlu
Andhra Pradesh Employees Joint Action Committee (JAC) chairman Bopparaju Venkateswarlu said on Saturday that government employees will be involved in panchayat elections only after vaccination. He stated that State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar issued notification for panchayat elections even after Chief Secretary Aditya Nath Das informed him that government employees are unwilling to take part in the election process. Bopparaju asked Nimmagadda to give a guarantee to their lives. Meanwhile, the special leave petition filed by the AP government in the Supreme Court opposing panchayat elections will come up for hearing on Monday.
