AP High Court notices to SEC Nilam Sawhney
With the recent tenure of Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar ended as State Election Commissioner, the AP State government has appointed Neelam Sahni as the new SEC. However, a petition was filed by one of the Visakhapatnam residents in the AP High Court challenging the appointment of Neelam Sahni as SEC. In the petition, he has questioned how she can be offered the post immediately after her retirement. The petitioner has also submitted some court cases in such appointments and verdicts given by the high courts and the SC.
After going through all these, the High Court has issued notices to Neelam Sahni and the government officials to respond to it and file a counterclaim. The case hearing has been adjourned to June 29.
