Delhi High Court dismisses petition seeking derecognition YSR Congress Party
The Delhi High Court on Friday struck down the petition filed by the Anna YSR Congress Party seeking to derecognise the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) for using the “YSR” acronym. The petitioner pleaded the High Court to direct the Election Commission of India (ECI) to withdraw recognition for the YSRCP.
The single-judge Bench of Justice Prateek Jalan said that the petition was filed with an ill-intention. The verdict was pronounced after seeking the opinion of the ECI. Sheik Mahaboob Basha, founder-president of Anna YSR Congress Party filed the petition in the High Court.
