Hyderabad: The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee on Wednesday complained to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on the MLC elections under local authorities category and demanded the cancellation of the poll notification.
On Wednesday, AICC spokesperson Dasoju Sravan met the Chief Election Commissioner in New Delhi and submitted a memorandum to this effect.
Speaking to media persons later, Mr Sravan said that they have demanded the cancellation of the election notification issued for three MLC seats in the local bodies quota.
Mr Sravan said that the Chief Election Commissioner has assured him that all issues that the TPCC has raised in the memorandum would be considered by the Election Commission and an appropriate decision would taken.
