Praja Rajyam to get common symbol
The Andhra Pradesh High Court issued a directive to the Election Commission to allot a common symbol from among the list of free symbols to all the registered parties.
The HC gave the ruling in a case filed by Lok Satta pleading for allotment of Whistle symbol. The HC rejected the contention of the EC on the issue of registered parties and recognized parties.
Thus, Lok Satta, Praja Rajyam Party, Mana Party and Praja Shanthi Party will each get a common symbol to contest the ensuing general elections.
