YSRCP Petitions CEC Against AP Chief Minister’s “Intimidating Tactics”

The main Opposition in Andhra Pradesh has urged the Election Commission to take action against Chandrababu Naidu for using “illegal means” to win the forthcoming Nandyal by-poll.

Amaravati: Opposition YSRCP leaders have met Chief Election Commission Achal Kumar Jyoti and urged him to take action against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu “for intimidating voters of Nandyal.”

They alleged that the TDP chief was using illegal means to win the forthcoming Nandyal by-poll and demanded that the ruling party be de-recognised.

YV Subba Reddy, who submitted videos as evidence in support of his allegation, stated in his letter “It is relevant to mention that the TDP, which is in power in Andhra Pradesh, (has) unleashed undemocratic, unethical practices in elections by violating various provisions of the Constitution of India and election laws”.

Subba Reddy quoted as evidence Naidu’s speech in which he is stated to have asked people to vote for TDP as they were using roads built by his government. “Why can’t you support us politically when you are using all government facilities like pensions, schemes and roads,” he is reported to have asked.

This was also stated in the letter by Subba Reddy, which was handed over to CEC.
