Vijayawada: Minister for Water Resources Devineni Umamaheshwara Rao, MLAs Gadde Rammohan Rao and Uppuleti Kalpana, MLCs YV Rajendra Prasad, Buddha Venkanna, Batchula Arjunudu and AS Rama Krishna besides several senior leaders of TDP met District Collector MD Imtiaz here on Thursday and lodged a complaint against the leaders of YSR Congress for illegally submitting Form-7 applications to delete the votes of TDP sympathisers. They said that nearly 32,000 applications have been submitted wrongly to the Election Commission in the last three days.
Devineni Uma said that the YSR Congress submitted Form-7 applications to delete 95,175 votes of the TDP sympathisers in Krishna district alone. He said that the YSR Congress party was following illegal practices to remove votes. The minister also said that the YSR Congress leader was creating confusion among the people using his own media organisations. He wondered as to how one person could apply 70 Form-7 applications to remove the votes.
The minister alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was involved in the voters removing plan. The TRS implemented the same illegal practice during the last elections in Telangana by deleting 24 lakh votes to win the elections. Now the YSR Congress made plans to remove nearly 54 lakh votes in the State following the direction of TRS leadership.
He said that the undemocratic practice of removing votes never happened in the past. The YSR Congress made an attempt to remove 7,141 votes in his Mylavaram constituency, he added. On this occasion, Krishna District Collector Imtiaz said that they would take action against fake applicants by tracing out their addresses. He said that the Election Commission would take stringent action against them.
TDP senior leaders Jasti Sambasiva Rao and others were present. Later the TDP leaders also met Police Commissioner Dwaraka Tirumala Rao and other officials in this connection.
