HYDERABAD: Telangana unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday complained to Election Commission of India (ECI) against ruling TRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha casting her vote in Tuesday’s Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.

In a letter to ECI, BJP’s state general secretary G. Premender Reddy pointed out that the MLC had cast her vote in Bodhan assembly constituency the last time assembly and Lok Sabha elections were held. He maintained that Kavitha had used the same EPIC number Voter ID in GHMC elections too to cast her vote.
