TD complains to SEC on irregularities in MLC elections

VIJAYAWADA: Leaders of Telugu Desam Party have lodged a complaint with State Election Commission (SEC) against YSR Congress, alleging that the ruling party is resorting to irregularities in preparation of voters’ list for the forthcoming MLC elections.

TD leaders, including former minister Nakka Anand Babu and MLC P. Ashok Babu, met Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Mukesh Kumar Meena at the secretariat in Velagapudi.

They gave the CEO a written complaint about officials registering names of people as graduate voters, even though these voters do not have a degree qualification. The TD leaders requested Meena to proceed against such voters as also officials who have enrolled them as voters.

TD leaders alleged that the government has appointed Pratap Reddy as the regional joint director of Kadapa district education department. They pointed out that Pratap Reddy is the husband of Krishna, Guntur Teachers’ YSRC MLC Kalpana Reddy. As such, they demanded that Pratap Reddy be immediately removed as RJD and shifted. Otherwise, he would vitiate the voters’ list in favour of ruling YSRC party.

The Telugu Desam leaders hoped Election Commission will take positive action on their complaint.
