HC notice to EC on TRS poll symbol

By Our Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD Aug. 5. A division Bench of the A.P. High Court, comprising the Chief Justice, Devinder Gupta, and the justice, C.V. Ramulu, on Tuesday issued notices to the Election Commission of India and directed it to respond within four weeks to a writ petition filed by the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) complaining about the election symbol is not being available to it.

The writ petition was filed by Yadagiri Reddy, general secretary of TRS.

He said that the Election Commission was not allotting to it a new symbol claiming that there was no provision for allotting symbols to unrecognized political parties.

The petitioner told the court that a separate symbol was allotted to it during the local body elections by the State Election Commission. He said that the inaction on the part of the Election Commission to allot a symbol would lead to situation wherein the candidates put up by TRS would have to fight elections on different symbols.

The Bench posted the matter to September 8.
