New Delhi: In a significant development, the Supreme Court of India has stepped in to stay the Telangana High Court’s recent order that declared the election of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLA Bandla Krishna Mohan Reddy from the Gadwal constituency as void. This decision comes as a major twist in the ongoing legal battle surrounding the election results.

A bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and Dipankar Datta has issued a notice to BJP leader DK Aruna, who was declared elected by the high court after nullifying Mr. Reddy’s election. The notice demands her response within a four-week timeframe. This move by the Supreme Court marks a pivotal moment in the electoral dispute, as it seeks to address the complexities of the case.

The Telangana High Court, in its ruling on August 24, not only invalidated Mr. Reddy’s election but also imposed a hefty fine of ₹2.5 lakh on him for submitting a false affidavit regarding his assets along with his nomination form. Additionally, the high court retroactively declared Ms. Aruna as elected from December 2018, while ordering Mr. Reddy to pay ₹50,000 towards litigation costs. This judgment has had far-reaching consequences, affecting the political landscape of the region.

The crux of the matter revolves around allegations made by Ms. Aruna that Mr. Reddy concealed crucial information regarding his assets in his election affidavit. She asserted that he failed to disclose ownership of 24.09 acres of land in Pudur village, Mahabubnagar district, Telangana. Furthermore, Ms. Aruna accused Mr. Reddy of not revealing his wife’s bank account details in the affidavit. These allegations have intensified the legal battle, with both parties vehemently defending their positions.

This legal tussle has drawn significant attention, not only for its political ramifications but also for its implications on election transparency and accountability. The Supreme Court’s intervention is expected to provide clarity and resolution to this complex electoral dispute, setting a precedent for future cases of a similar nature.
