No possibility for SEC Nimmagadda to hold panchayat polls, says AP Govt Employees Federation chief
There is no possibility for State Election Commissioner (SEC) Nimmagadda Ramesh to hold panchayat elections in February, said Andhra Pradesh Government Employees’ Federation chairman K Venkatram Reddy on Saturday. He faulted the SEC for taking an unilateral decision without considering the fear of government employees about their lives. Venkatram Reddy mentioned the SEC himself has admitted during the release of notification for panchayat elections that 3.6 lakh new voters would be losing an opportunity to vote. The new voters may file petitions in the High Court seeking the right to vote, he said.
