NEW DELHI: The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Wednesday asked Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) to clarify news reports stating that Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has been made the permanent President of the party.
The poll body also expressed displeasure and affirmed that any attempt or even a hint of any organisational post in any political party being made permanent will not be tolerated.
“Any action which denies the periodicity of elections for any post is inherently anti-democratic and is in complete violation of the extant instructions of the Commission,” ECI said in a statement.
“To put the possibility of such confusion at rest, as it has the potential to assume contagious proportions with other political formations also making such a move, it is directed to make a clear and categorical public announcement contradicting media reports,” it said.
The EC order came after the YSRCP initially informed the poll panel about the “unanimous” election of Jagan Mohan Reddy as president of the party on July 8 and 9 this year, but did not categorically admit or deny the specific allegation forwarded by EC regarding he being made permanent president for life.
The YSRCP had later confirmed to the EC that the issue was reported in the media and that the party has launched an internal enquiry in this regard. It had also told EC that “necessary action” on the same will be taken by the party on finding the facts.
