HC adjourns hearing on Jangaon election row

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday adjourned till tomorrow the hearing on the petition involving Information Technology minister, Ponnala Lakshmaiah in Jangaon constituency election controversy.

It may be recalled here that the IT minister  had won the assembly elections from Jangaon in Warangal with a wafer-thin margin of 236 votes against Kommuri Pratap Reddy. Pratap Reddy filed a petition in the court stating that Ponnala's victory doesn't stand!

The Supreme Court recently rejected  Ponnala Lakshmaiah's election petition challenging the High Court's verdict which directed the authorities to recount the 2009 election results.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Ponnala for wasting the court's time.
