Hyderabad: Over 30 per cent polling was reported till noon in Medak parliamentary constituency in Telangana where by-election is being held.

In Nandigama assembly segment in Andhra Pradesh too, over 30 per cent polling was reported.

 

Telangana minister T Harish Rao, Assembly Deputy Speaker Padma Devender Reddy, the contesting candidates K Prabhakar Reddy (TRS), T Jayaprakash Reddy (BJP) and V Sunita Laxma Reddy (Congress) were among the prominent persons who exercised their franchise in Medak.

Villagers of Gangapur boycotted the by-poll protesting the non-setting up of a polling booth in their village.

Similarly, in Peddapur under Veldurthi mandal too villagers boycotted the election protesting lack of proper roads to their village and neglect in undertaking other development works.

 

Senior officials have visited the village to persuade the villagers to give up their boycott and take part in the polling.

In three-four polling booths, polling process was delayed by a few minutes as officials had to replace snag-hit Electronic Voting Machines.

Returning Officer for Medak Lok Sabha constituency Rahul Bojja said polling was continuing peacefully across the seven Assembly segments.

By-poll is being held in Nandigama in Andhra Pradesh due to death of MLA-elect Tangirala Prabhakar of the TDP and his daughter is now contesting the election against Congress' B Babu Rao.
