Hyderabad, Jan.16 (Maxim News): Marri Shashidhar Reddy, TPCC Election Coordination Committee chairman, urged Telangana State Election Commission to book a case against AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi and issue a notice to him for calling upon people to take money from Congress, but vote for him.
In a letter to the State Election Commission today, Marri Shashidhar Reddy said during his election meeting in Sangareddy recently, the Hyderabad MP violated the model code of conduct by exhorting the people to accept money from the Congress party, but vote in his party’s favour in the municipal elections. “This is violative of the Model Code of Conduct for asking people to take bribe. I urge the State Election Commission to book a case against Asaduddin Owaisi and issue a notice to him”, he said, adding that immediate action by the TSEC will send the message that it is acting impartially and is committed to act firmly when violations take place even if the party involved in working closely with the ruling TRS party.
Marri also attached the video showing AIMIM president and MP Asaduddin Owaisi and the press clipping captioned “Take money from Congress but vote for me, says Asaduddin Owaisi“. (Maxim News)
