This morning, andhra pradesh high court set aside the ordinance given by the State government to change the service rules of the State election Commissioner. It has asked the government to continue the previous Commissioner, N Ramesh Kumar with immediate effect.
The court opined that the State government can not change the service rules of an SEC according to Article 213. Immediately after the judgment, N Ramesh Kumar announced coming back to work. "Will conduct local elections after normalcy is restored. people are not permanent but Constitutional systems and their values will be," he said in a statement released to media.
Sources say that jagan is fuming on the officials about the outcome of the case. He feels that Ramesh Kumar should go in any case or it will be dangerous to face the local elections under him. The government is planning to knock the supreme Court's door about this. “We shall discuss all aspects of the judgment and place the facts before the supreme court,” sources close to the government said. Let us see if the government will find any relief at least in the supreme Court.
