Cong. seeks EC action against TS Govt on Code

Congress MP Gutha Sukhender Reddy today complained to Election Commission that the TRS Government was misusing power to gain in Warangal bypoll.

Accompanied by a team of party leaders, Sukhender Reddy met Chief Electoral Officer Bhanwar Lal at the Secretariat here and appealed to him to initiate action against the government for violating election code by releasing Rs 150 crore towards fees reimbursement and announcing other sops. Sukhender Reddy also urged the CEO to take action against the ministers and legislators for violating the code.

Speaking to the media later, Gutha said the State government was misusing official machinery in the electioneering. The KCR regime is afraid of defeat in the bypoll and announcing sops to lure the people, he alleged. (NSS)
