The local body elections in Andhra Pradesh has postponed by six weeks. As a preventative measure against the spread of coronavirus, elections postponed. The candidates made almost all the arrangements for the elections so far. With the end of the elections by the end of March, there is a chance of getting Rs 5000 crores from the Central government. In some cases, the YCP candidates won by unanimous approval.
State Election Commissioner N Ramesh Kumar said that COVID-19 posed a major challenge to public health and well-being. Using its discretionary powers, Ramesh Kumar has decided to postpone the election process. The neighbouring states already declared partial shutdown of schools, commercial complexes, and other public gatherings.
If the elections get completed by the end of March, AP will get funds from the Central government. If not, there will be no release of funds. That's the reason why the Chief Minister is so worried about it.
Now the state government decided to approach the Supreme Court. It seems like, there is no possibility of the change in the electoral committee's decision. If the court says to hold elections now, Jagan will be saved. Only the supreme court can save Jagan. As the coronavirus spread throughout the country there will be no change in the orders. The reason behind the electoral union's decision was the corona outbreak.
Coronavirus spread throughout the country. So there is no situation where the Supreme Court says that elections should be held. Ramesh Kumar said that they have taken permission from the central election commission officials. The Supreme Court, therefore, says that it is possible to leave these powers to the electoral body. The notion that there will be no outcome is the most heard. It remains to be seen what decision the Election Commission will make in this regard.
