- Kavitha lands in trouble after casting her vote in Hyderabad
- Congress, BJP complaint to SEC
Hyderabad: The fiery battle is still continuing between TRS and opposition parties, the Congress and the BJP, even after polling was over. This time the opposition pointed out about MLC Kavitha casting her vote in Hyderabad during GHMC Elections.
Congress Complaints to SEC
TPCC spokesperson Indira Sobhan alleged that Kavitha has voter ID at Navipeta mandal, Bodhan assembly constituency which is in Nizamabad district. There is no problem in casting vote, but when she had enrolled her vote at Pothungal, how can she use it in Hyderabad for GHMC elections? Indira questioned Kavitha with documentary evidence. If CM’s daughter indulged in dual vote, where is democracy going? It is against the Constitution and I request SEC to disqualify her from MLC position, Indira said.
BJP Lodges Complaint too
BJP leaders also met EC on Wednesday and lodged complaint against Kavitha. Gujjala Premanada Reddy, BJP’s leader, wrote a letter to EC demanding to take action against Kavitha and disqualify her from MLC.
After receiving complaints from opposition parties and news spread in social media, EC came out with a statement that Kavitha cancelled her vote at Pothungal. But EC was mum when questioned about the reflection of Kavitha’s name in the latest website of Election Commission which shows she is still a voter of Nizamabad district.
