After Peddireddy, SEC Restricts Jogi Ramesh

After Peddireddy, SEC Restricts Jogi Ramesh

State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar had once again issued restriction orders on ruling YSR Congress MLA.

A few days ago, he had issued similar orders against Minister for Panchayat Raj Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy.

However, the SEC orders against Peddireddy were set aside by the High Court in two stages.

Now, without even seeking explanation from the MLA, the SEC had issued orders preventing Pedana MLA Jogi Ramesh from meeting and speaking to people till February 17.

Nimmagadda issued these orders following ‘serious complaints’ against the MLA from three major political parties.

The MLA had reportedly stated that the government would withdraw welfare measures if people contested in the Gram Panchayat elections against the ruling party.

Without seeking explanation of the MLA concerned, the SEC had issued orders prohibiting him from speaking to the people and media till February 13.

However, an hour later, Nimmagadda issued another order extending the prohibitive period from February 13 to 17.

Nimmagadda also directed the Collector and SP of Krishna district to ensure that the SEC orders are enforced.

It is now to be seen, particularly in the light of the high court setting aside such orders issued against Minister Peddireddy, whether the administration would implement these orders or whether the MLA would allow these orders to be implemented.
