Earlier, a clash was reported between Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena workers and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP party workers in Mamidikuduru area.

About 2.5 crore voters are eligible to vote in the elections for 7,220 MPTCs (Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituencies) and 515 ZPTCs (Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituencies) spread across 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh.

    Andhra Pradesh Mandal, Zila Parishad Election 2021 Live: Polling only till 2pm in Maoist-affected areas. 

    Andhra Pradesh Mandal, Zila Parishad Election 2021 Live: Polling is being held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Polling will continue till 2 pm only in Maoist-affected areas. 

    On Tuesday, a single-judge bench had granted a stay on the proposed election. Justice U Durga Prasad of the High Court had stayed the parishad election process, saying the commission could not unilaterally take its own decision defying the direction of the Supreme Court in respect to enforcement of the model code of conduct. He then passed the interim order on a petition filed by TDP leader Varla Ramaiah. The commission, however, challenged the single judge’s order before a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Arup Kumar Goswami and Justice C Praveen Kumar, which struck down Prasad’s order yesterday. The division bench, however, ordered that counting of votes and declaration of results be not taken up till further orders. The state commission had scheduled the counting of votes for April 10. Following the HC order, the commission is conducting the polling today. The election body had already put all necessary arrangements in place.
