Probe origins of SEC letter: YSRCP
Close on the heels of Supreme Court verdict, a letter purportedly written by State Election Commissioner seeking Central forces for his protection and conduct of elections has been doing the rounds and we will meet the DGP to ask him to inquire into the origins of the letter, YSRCP has said.
The Election Commissioner N Ramesh Kumar has neither denied nor confirmed whether or not he wrote the letter which can be seen as a scar on the high office, Party MLAs Ambati Rambabu, K Parthasarathi and Jogi Ramesh told reporters here on Wednesday.
The elections have been mired in conspiracies and controversies and the SEC has been showing political colours in its conduct and the tone of the letter is in a damaging manner to the State seems to be written from the Opposition point of view.
The silence of Election Commissioner and the hyperactive zeal of TDP friendly media shows the political nexus. The letter parroting TDP line gives more credence to the Chandrababu Naidu conspiracy to stall the polls as it is poised for a big defeat.
The letter did not mention about coronavirus, the reason for postponing the elections but has political overtones which were expressed by Opposition and carries more details on the percentage of unanimous elections and TDP propaganda of continous violence besides expressing concern over opposition parties and blaming ruling party for it.
We will meet the DGP with a representation seeking inquiry and to trace the origin of the letter they said.
