Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) has urged the Chief Electoral Officer to take necessary action against the Ministers and TRS party leaders and officials for violating the election code in Palair byelection to be held on May 16.

TPCC official spokespersons B Kamalakar Rao and A Shyam Mohan submitted a memorandum to the Chief Electoral Officer here on Wednesday. They stated in the memorandum that the ruling TRS party was distributing huge amounts of cash to purchase and influence voters in the Palair constituency in Khammam district.

Cash was distributed during night-time from a house owned by former MLA V Chander Rao situated in his mango garden at Bodabandlagudem hamlet under Vallabhapuram gram panchayat in Mothe mandal in Nalgonda district. This hamlet was on the border of Palair constituency but physically located in Nalgonda district.

The cash was brought in huge quantities in the night to house in the mango garden and cash was given to the village level leaders of Palair constituency, they alleged. They alleged that Roads and Buildings Minister and TRS candidate Tummala Nageswara Rao was threatening voters that he can detect who voted from booth-wise and also EVM-wise and there would be consequences.

The Congress leaders attached with memorandum the purported threat issued by Nageswara Rao, saying that they had gathered from “Youtube.” They alleged in the letter that Khammam Intelligence DSP Bala Kishan was campaigning for the ruling party in the Palair byelection.
