Andhra Pradesh State Treasury Employees Union President G.Ravikumar, General Secretary D.Ramana Reddy have requested to conduct local body elections in summer. Though it appears that covid-19 cases are on the decline in the state, second wave poses a threat and it is unadvisable to conduct elections at this stage, they said. The Vaccination process has begun. Many employees have already become victims and many lost their lives to the virus. We suggest the elections be postponed at least until the frontline workers get vaccinated in the first phase an be conducted in the summer, they stated.
