As the temperatures are certainly raising between Telugu Desham-YSR Congress in Nandyal by-polls, both the party chiefs are spearheading the campaign.
TDP Supreme and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu will take part in a ‘Road Show’ today and as part of CM’s tour, a pantry vehicle was sent from Vijayawada to Nandyal last night. But, the karyakartas of YSR Congress overplayed and pictured it as ‘container carrying crores of money to be supplied in Nandyal’.
A group of YSRCP folks who gathered at Gajulapalle Metta attempted to stop the government vehicle and they approached Election Commission officials on duty to perform the inspection on that vehicle (AP16Z0363). These people of opposition party further alleged, ‘Though the vehicle was found to be registered in the name of APSRTC, it was painted as Police, Government Vehicle.’
But, all their accusations proved to be totally wrong as EC authorities confirmed that vehicle was only carrying pantry items like vegetables and cooking utensils. The EC officials have already taken adequate measures to stop the flow of money into constituency until the polling the finished.
On Friday, policemen nabbed close to 25 people (YSRCP workers) for distributing money to voters and an amount of 4 lakh has been recovered from them.
