Continuing paused municipal poll process not correct for SEC Nimmagadda, says APCC chief
APCC president S Sailajanath raised objection over State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar issuing a schedule for municipalities, municipal corporations and Nagar Panchayats without cancelling the unanimous wins. “I expected SEC will issue fresh notification for municipal elections,” he mentioned. The Congress leader alleged that the YSRCP leaders were involved in large-scale violence in elections to the urban local bodies in March 2020.
Sailajanath stated that the SEC has released schedule in favour of the ruling Jagan government. Elections to urban local bodies will be held on March 10 and counting of votes on March 14.
