HC Stays Gram Panchayat Polls On BC Quota Issue

The court directed the Telangana government to not conduct elections till the BC reservation issue was cleared.
Hyderabad | 26th June 2018
The Hyderabad High Court today stayed the process of the gram panchayat elections in Telangana.

The court directed the state government to not conduct elections till the BC reservation issue was cleared.

The court also directed the BC Commission to submit a report after conducting a comprehensive survey on the BC population in the state.

Dealing with a petition filed by Telangana Congress official spokesperson Dasoju Sravan on Tuesday, the High Court asked the government's counsel on what basis 34% reservation was allocated to the BCs.

The Additional Advocate General informed the court that the terms of the sarpanches and ward members were over, and that the government had therefore geared up to issue the Panchayat elections notification. Reacting to it, the court suggested to the Additional Advocate General to go in for elections only after clearing the BC A, B and C reservation processes.

The petitioner had also pleaded with the High Court to direct the state government to receive objections if any after conducting a survey as per the 2018 Panchayat Raj Act.

Welcoming the High Court decision, Sravan demanded that the state government conduct BC calculations in a justifiable manner. He alleged that the state government was showing wrong figures to do injustice to the BCs. He demanded the state government categorize BC reservations as A, B, C, D and E if it had sincerity.
