SEC Nimmagadda failed to prevent violence, irregularities in panchayat polls: Chandrababu
TDP national president N Chandrababu Naidu came down heavily on State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar for failing to prevent violence and irregularities in panchayat elections. Speaking to the media on Monday, he stated that he himself wrote 31 letters to the SEC seeking his intervention.
Chandrababu mentioned that returning officers have manipulated the results of panchayat elections by taking up recounting even if the difference of votes between the winning and losing candidates is more than 200. He said that the SEC has powers equal to Chief Election Commissioner.
