The state government on Thursday filed an appeal in the High Court against the stay on Guntur District Cooperative Central Bank (DCCB) election.
The state’s appeal came up before a division bench comprising chief justice PC Ghose and justice Vilas V Afzulpurkar, and the bench said it would hear the matter on Friday.
On Wednesday, justice Ramesh Ranganathan, while dealing with a writ petition by the voters of the Primary Agricultural Cooperative Society (PACS), Santhagudipadu, in Guntur district, passed an interim order staying the election of the executive body of the DCCB.
The government, in its writ appeal, sought suspension of the interim order of the single judge.
There would be unrest in the agriculturist community in the event of postponement of the DCCB elections, it said.
The voters of Santhagudipadu PACS pleaded for a stay on DCCB elections as the government has stayed their PACS election citing law and order issues, there by denying their PACS a vote in the DCCB poll.
The interim order of the single judge is against the view of the Supreme Court that once an election process is in motion, interference is not warranted, the government said in its appeal.
