Delhi HC dismisses plea seeking de-registration of YSRCP


New Delhi, Jun 4 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today dismissed a petition seeking de-registration of Yuvajana Sramika Rythu (YSR) Congress Party of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, calling it as “entirely without merit”.

The Single-Judge Bench of Justice Prateek Jalan pronounced the Judgement on a petition filed by Anna YSR Congress Party, which opposed the use of acronym YSR Congress Party in the letterheads of the ruling party in Andhra Pradesh.

It was alleged by the petitioner that despite the Election Commission barring it from adopting “YSR Congress Party” as its name, the party was doing so illegally and unlawfully on its letterheads and campaign material.

The petitioner also stated that “YSR Congress” was an integral part of its “Anna YSR Congress Party”, and that the party in power has been misappropriating the name.

It was claimed by the petitioner that the YSR Congress should be de-recognised as a political party under Para 16A of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968.

The Bench found the petition “entirely without metit” and dismissed the same. ILNS/SHV/RJ
