Hyderabad | 19th September 2018
Even as the Election Commission has started the process for elections in Telangana and all political parties are gearing up for the same, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court against the elections and for the stalling of the election process.

P Shashank Reddy of Siddipet moved the Supreme Court seeking steps to ensure that the polls are conducted in May 2019, with the state under President's Rule till then.

Reddy complained to the court against TRS boss and caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for abruptly dissolving the Assembly and going in for early polls in violation of the Constitutional norms. He claimed that about 20 lakh youths will lose their voting chance if early polls were held in Telangana as against in May 2019.

The petitioner said that there was no emergency or political crisis in the state as the ruling party had complete majority, and that the dissolution of the Assembly was only for political gain. He also said that it was against the law for the CM to say that he was going in for early polls only after talking to the EC, and that the elections would be held in November. It was for the EC has to decide and declare the schedule of the elections, and KCR had no business in this regard, Reddy said.

Since the early polls would deprive about 20 lakh youth of a chance to vote, the court needed to direct the stalling of the same and ask for President's Rule in Telangana.
