Telangana Grama panchayat Elections 2018

Telangana Grama panchayat Elections 2018

The new government that will come into office in the state after counting of votes on December 11, will face a huge challenge of conducting polls to the gram panchayats in the state before January 10, 2019. 
The Hyderabad High court had directed the state government on October 11, 2018, to conduct elections to the gram panchayats within three months. 
As reported earlier, even the state election commission (EC) has started the pre-election process for the panchayat polls. 
However, sources said that the latest Supreme Court judgement that said the state could not exceed the 50% cap in reservations is likely to delay the conduct of gram panchayat polls in the state . 
Presently, 34 per cent reservations are being extended to BCs in local bodies. This quota for BCs needs to becut to size to abide by the apex court's order to maintain 50 per cent cap on reservations. A senior official in Panchayat Raj Department said the quota of 26.19 per cent to SCs and STs cannot be changed until a constitutional amendment is made. 

However, the state can reduce the BC quota at its level by passing an act in the legislative assembly or by promulgating an ordinance. 
"The catch here is that if the new government reduces the quota, it will antagonize the BCs who comprise over 50 per cent population in Telangana, and on the other hand it cannot go ahead with 34 per cent BC quota. So, it is likely that the government would go to the Court, seeking more time to conduct Panchayat elections and work out a feasible solution," said the official. 
It may be mentioned here that the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led TRS government had created new panchayats taking the total tally of gram panchayats to 12,751.
The state government has been under tremendous pressure from BCs to increase their quota from 34 per cent to 52 per cent, which, according to them, is in proportion to their populations in gram panchayats across the state. 
In fact, BC organisations have been demanding categorisation of quota for quite some time now. They want categorisation into A, B, C, D and E groups so that every sub-caste in the Backward Caste list gets an opportunity to occupy the seats of the sarpanch and ward members in gram panchayats.
