AP Opp MPs want EC to derecognise ruling TDP

| | New Delhi

A delegation of MPs from Andhra Pradesh's Opposition YSRCP  on Monday asked the Election Commission to "derecognise" the State's ruling Telugu Desam Party for allegedly violating provisions of the Constitution and election laws.

YSR Congress Party MPs met Chief Election Commissioner Achal Kumar Joti and alleged that Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had made an "undemocratic" speech in Nandyala constituency and threatened to withdraw welfare schemes if people did not vote for him, party leader Y V Subba Reddy said. The constituency is scheduled to hold a by-election following the death of TDP MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy.

"In the speech in Nandyala constituency on 22 June, Chief Minister Naidu had told people not to use roads and forego pensions if they were not willing to vote for him," Lok Sabha MP Y V Subba Reddy wrote in a letter.

The delegation also submitted newspaper clippings and CDs to back its allegations. "Nandyala constituency is about to face a by-election. Even before the notification, TDP was indulging in luring people by spending money lavishly," Reddy said.
