Hyderabad, July 22 (NSS): Mr. Yalamanchili Babu Rajendra Prasad, TDP MLC and President of the AP MPTCs Association has filed a petition challenging the appointment of Special Officers in village Panchayats, Mandal Parishats and APs by the government.
He has argued in the petition filed on Friday that appointment special officers was violation of the constitution and amounted to mockery of the 73rd amendment. He has urged the court to continue the MPC|TCs, Sarpanches, ZPTCs and ZP Chairpersons who were directly elected by the people as Persons In-Charge, until elections were held to these bodies. Arguing that though the people’s representatives whose term had elapsed would still be more responsible and committed to people than Special Officers, he has urged the court to suspend the operation of GO MS 187 and continue the present incumbents.
