Anna Ysr Congress Party vs The Election Commissioner Of … on 4 June, 2021


2. The petitioner and Respondent No. 2 are both political parties,
registered under Section 29A of the Representation of the People Act,
1951 [“the Act”]. The petitioner’s name is “Anna YSR Congress
Party”. It contends that Respondent No. 2, registered as “Yuvajana
Sramika Rythu Congress Party”, is using an abbreviated form of its
registered name, viz. “YSR Congress Party”, which is deceptively
similar to the petitioner’s name. According to the petitioner, such use
by Respondent No. 2 is contrary to directions of the ECI, and
Respondent No. 2 is consequently liable to withdrawal of its
registration, and its status as a “recognised political party”.
