Hyderabad: Congress finds fault with SEC poll % stats, seeks CCTV footage
AICC Spokesperson Sravan Dasoju expresses concerns over the sudden rise of the poll percentage which spiked to 50% in just one hour from 38% reported until 5 pm
Hyderabad: AICC Spokesperson Sravan Dasoju has found fault with the State Election Commission's poll percentage statistics and suspected a possible rigging done by the TRS and MIM parties in the GHMC elections. The senior Congress leader was surprised to see the poll percentage has gone up to 60% and even 90% in certain polling stations in the old city of Hyderabad. He expressed concerns over the sudden rise of this poll percentage which spiked to 50% in just one hour from 38% reported until 5 pm.
"I doubt the statistics released by the SEC. At a time when the electronic media was showing that there were no voters coming to the polling stations and the staff were taking a nap, how come suddenly the poll percentage has gone up so much", Dr Sravan asked.
He requested the SEC to provide the day-long CCTV footage of the GHMC election. He filed an RTI application under section 6(1) with the SEC for polling booth wise footage of 150 divisions of GHMC. He asked the following queries with the State Election Commission.
