The Telangana High Court on Thursday (today) took State Election Commission (SEC) to task for holding elections on April 30 at a time when corona cases and deaths are at peak across the state.
The High Court asked SEC, “Are elections important for you than public lives?”
The High Court questioned SEC where was the need to seek state government opinion on holding polls and where was the need to issue election notification at this stage.
The High Court asked SEC whether it has no power powers to postpone municipal polls and whether SEC can’t see increasing corona cases and deaths in Telangana.
The High Court expressed anger at SEC when it told the court that it had issued poll notification after taking the opinion of the state government.
