AP govt files petition in HC challenging stay on election to Eluru Municipal Corporation
The AP government on Tuesday filed a lunch motion petition in the High Court challenging the single judge bench’s verdict on election to the Eluru Municipal Corporation. The High Court directed the State Election Commission (SEC) not to conduct election to the civic body as the AP government did not follow the rules regarding merger of seven villages in the municipal corporation. Moreover, voters list was not prepared as per the divisions and reservation of wards was not followed. The petition will come up for hearing before full bench on Tuesday afternoon.
