HC Grants 6-Week Stay In TRS MLA Chennamaneni’s Citizenship Ro
It may be recalled that the Central government on last Thursday cancelled his Indian citizenship following a report submitted by the SK Tandon Judicial Committee stating that the TRS MLA from Vemulawada constituency, had obtained Indian citizenship by submitting fake documents. The committee also claimed that Chennamaneni continues to be a German citizen.
Chennamaneni Ramesh filed a review petition in the High Court challenging the order of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Ministry of Home Affairs, Telangana Home Secretary and Rajanna Siricilla District Collector are made as respondents in the petition.
As per Section 5(1) of The Citizenship Act, Chennamaneni obtained his Indian citizenship after returning from Germany. He also found fault with the Home Ministry stating that the Indian Citizenship can be cancelled only in cases of anti-national activity.
