Central Govt to postpone Elections by 6 months


Election-CommissionHyderabad: Having succeeded in passing the T Bill in Lok Sabha, the Congress high command is contemplating to impose President’s Rule soon after Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy resigns on Wednesday, and would later decide on postponement of elections in both the States by six months. The party, it is said, is not in favour of having him as the interim Chief Minister for Andhra Pradesh.

The Union Cabinet will take a decision to impose Presidents rule in a day or two and will get the Parliament’s nod before the session comes to end. If the government takes a final decision to postpone the elections, it will have to bring in amendments to the T Bill. Though no such amendment has been made in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, it is said that the government is likely to introduce the amendment in Rajya Sabha when the Bill will be introduced on Wednesday.
