Local polls: Returning officers put results on hold after counting, Chandrababu complains to SEC
TDP national president N Chandrababu Naidu wrote a letter to State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar alleging that returning officers have kept the results of some gram panchayats in pending even after counting of votes in the third phase of rural body elections. He accused polling officials of taking decisions on the directions of the ruling YSRCP government.
Chandrababu brought to the notice of the SEC that returning officers are taking up recounting of votes in certain panchayats to sway results in favour of the YSRCP supported candidates. He slammed police officials for registering false cases against opposition backed candidates if they raise objections.
