Hyderabad: As we know that, The Telangana State Assembly is now dissolved almost 9 months in advance, after the Honourable Chief Minister of Telangana met the Honourable Prime Minister of India, probably taking assurance for holding elections in November 2018 itself along with the elections in other 3 or 4 states.
If it's so, Telangana will have elections in November 2018 and again in April / May 2019. Thus unnecessary additional expenditure is thrust on the people.
A petition has been filed against the resolution of Telangana Assembly in the Hyderabad High Court. In the petition, it was stated that dissolving the Assembly ahead of nine months of General Election 2019 will affect the development of the state.
In the petition, it was also questioned the sanctity of the five years state government disobeying the democratic norms.
According to the reports, Rapolu Bhaskar is the petitioner who raised his voice questioning the constitutional norms of the state government. The Court will take the proceedings on Tuesday, it is learned.
There are currently debates on holding the elections for State Assemblies and Parliament simultaneously to minimise the public expenditure and burden on administration.
The 21st Law Commission recently released a draft report on holding simultaneous elections for all State Assemblies along with Parliament elections to reduce expenditure on multiple elections. The Election Commission of India also favored this idea but felt that it may not be possible for 2019 elections.
