The appointment of Special Officials in place of Sarpanches in the Telangana villages has been disapproved by HC. In addition, Telangana Government was ordered to conduct Panchayat Polls within 3 Months.   



Actually, The term of Sarpanches in Telangana ended win August 2018. TRS Government delayed Panchayat Polls for the sake of Assembly Polls. Instead of extending the tenure of Sarpanches, Special Officials were appointed in place of them in each and every village across the state.
