For extension of tenure for three months.
In the midst of these developments, it is becoming clear that Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar is of the opinion that local companies should be managed under any circumstances. Facing criticism from ruling YSR Congress party leaders, he seems to be working to extend his tenure for another three months. He says there is no chance of him approaching the high court for this.
The term ends in March
Nimmagadda Rameshkumar’s term ends on March 31. In 2016, during the tenure of the then Chandrababu Naidu government, he was appointed as the state election commissioner. The five-year term ends in March. Even after that, Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar is said to be planning to extend his tenure for another three months. After YS Jagan came to power .. he seems to be looking for available ways to make up for the time he was meaninglessly fired.
Challenging removal ..
It is learned that Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar has already approached the High Court seeking his removal and a verdict in his favor. He has been away from office for over three months. He was then replaced by Jagan Sarkar. The Madras High Court appointed former judge Justice Kanagaraj as the state election commissioner. Referring to the courts’ assertion that the Jagan government had illegally removed him from office, Ramesh Kumar reportedly wanted to regain his lost term in the form of an extension.
With the perseverance to hold elections and pay ..
During his tenure, Ramesh Kumar is said to have persevered to hold elections for local bodies, gram panchayats and municipal corporations. If he is unable to hold local body elections by the time he retires, there are opinions that he must seek recourse to the High Court to extend his tenure. It seems that efforts are being made to recoup the lost tenure from his dismissal until his re-appointment.
