TDP will challenge HC verdict on parishad elections in Supreme Court: Varla
TDP general secretary and politburo member Varla Ramaiah said that his party will challenge the High Court verdict on ZPTC and MPTC elections in the Supreme Court. Talking to reporters, he faulted State Election Commissioner Nilam Sawhney for issuing notification to conduct parishad elections on April 8 without holding an all-party meeting and not addressing the issues raised by opposition parties. Varla criticised the SEC for not following the Supreme Court guideline of four weeks gap between the election notification and polling. He mentioned that the SEC had assured him to render justice after taking legal opinion.
