EC and AP on collision course
The Election Commission of India has taken a very serious view of the Andhra Pradesh Agriculture Minister, N. Raghuveera Reddy’s derogatory comments and has termed it a gross interference in its affairs. The minister had criticised the EC the other day for its reported decision to suspend rythu chaitanya yatras meant for farmers.
The EC has asked the Chief Secretary, P. Ramakanth Reddy, to submit a fresh report before May 14 on the government’s alleged violation of election code by raising the income limit for white ration cards and sanction of new power connections to the poor.It further asked the Chief Secretary to attend a meeting at New Delhi on May 16 to discuss the issue.
