Publish Date:Mar 11, 2014





State Election Commissioner P. Ramakanth Reddy said that Election Commission worked on Sunday to release the schedule on a war-footing to comply with the Supreme Court orders on March 7.

He blatantly blamed the past State government for the present situation and despite several reminders the Government failed to respond to finalize the reservations for municipalities and PR bodies. Now the elections to the municipalities, panchayat raj institutions, Assembly and Lok Sabha seats were scheduled to be conducted at one go which will cause a lot of inconvenience to the State govt. machinery and the support staff who have to help in the electoral process. Answering a question regarding postponing the Municipal elections which is back to back with the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections , he clearly said that cannot be done and the commission would abide by the Court rulings. GHMC Hyderabad would go for elections in November.
