Political scenarios in Andhra took a new turn with state High Court on Monday suspending the schedule of local polls announced by the state election commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar.
While the SEC filed a review petition before the division bench of the High Court on Tuesday, the scuffle reached to Governor Biswabhushan Harichandan’s court, of late.
While a section of political circles confirmed that Governor himself took up the initiative to settle down the scuffle between the Jagan-led government and SEC, sources close to Ninmmgadda have it that the SEC took the Governor’s appointment to appeal to intervene in the matter.
As per the information from the Raj Bhavan sources, Ramesh Kumar has briefed about the on-going developments in the panchayat polls saga between the SEC and state government.
In a 30 mins meeting, SEC was learnt to submit an aggregate report over the same. If the Governor intervening in the row is believed to be true, then CM Jagan or his delegation would be the next to be called by the former.
Meanwhile, the bench, which heard a petition filed by the Jagan government on the conduct of the panchayat elections suspending the election schedule in view of public health. The bench, which received a lunch motion filed by the government seeking adjournment of the panchayat elections, held a hearing.
