A bench of Justice Jayant Nath issued notice to the ECI and the Jagan's YSR Congress Party slated the matter for further hearing on September 3.

A petition moved by Anna YSR Congress party sought directions to the Election Commission to withdraw the recognition of Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSR Congress Party over the alleged wrongful use of the "YSR" acronym.

The Anna YSR Congress Party, in its plea, has opposed the use of the acronym "YSR" in the letterheads of the ruling party in Andhra Pradesh. The Anna YSR Congress Party contended that Jagan Mohan Reddy-led party was registered in the name of Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party and alleged that it is illegally using the letterheads with the acronym of YSR Congress Party.
