Tadepally, May 29 (Maxim News): Shocked at judgment of AP high court on the issue of suspension of former State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar, state government has decided to challenge it in the supreme court of India. The ruling YSRCP MLA Ambati Rambabu said that they would approach the apex court of the country on the issue and challenge the verdict of the high court of the state.
Speaking to media persons, he said that Ramesh Kumar had lost his position after the issuance of an ordinance by the state government a month back. He said that Justice Kanagaraj was appointed as the State Election Commissioner in the place Kumar by the state government later. He said that the opposition TDP and BJP leaders approached the HC on the issue and urged it to cancel the ordinance and the GO issued by the state government appointing Justice Kanagaraj as the SEC. He added that the HC, while responding to their plea of the rival party leaders passed the orders setting aside the ordinance and the GO issued by the state government. He made it clear that sometimes they would not get justice and added that had scope to approach the higher court to seek justice.
Rambabu said that they were holding discussions with legal experts on the issue Targeting Kumar, he said that the former SEC had signed on a letter written by opposition party leader Nara Chandrababu Naidu against a legislative Act introduced by the state government to prevent the use of money and liquor in elections while asking Kumar if it was proper for him to do so.
He said that such letters would denigrate democratic values. He made it clear that they had brought the ordinance to remove Ramesh Kumar who was acting in a partial manner instead of democratic manner. He said that they would respect the verdict of the High Court and added that they would also appeal against it in the SC. (Maxim News)
