Nandyal Election Heats Up as Both Parties Complain Against Each Other on Day of Scrutiny
Kurnool: The Nandyal election, which has become prestigious to both ruling Telugu Desam Party and opposition YSR Congress party, took a shocking turn as the TDP filed a complaint with the Returning Officer that Silpa Mohan Reddy’s nomination filed on August 4 was not valid.
The legal cell of TDP expressed its objections as the nominations were scrutinized on Monday.
The cell alleged that the signature of advocate Rama Tulasi Reddy, who notarized Mohan Reddy’s nomination, was invalid as his license has already expired.
They also demanded that Silpa’s nomination should be rejected, as he did not use judicial stamp paper for nominations. The Returning Officer held discussions with both the parties and sought an explanation from Silpa Mohan Reddy by evening.
Meanwhile, the YSRCP filed a complaint seeking rejection of Telugu Desam Party candidate Brahmananda Reddy’s nomination.
The party alleged that he did not furnish all the particulars of his Income Tax; hence, his nomination should be rejected. The Returning Officer put both the nominations aside and started scrutinizing other nominations.
Finally after the scrutiny, the nominations of both the leaders have been accepted. The elections will take place on August 23.
