EC not responding to plaints against Naidu: YSRCP Legal Cell

Must read

State president of the YSR Congress Party Legal Cell, Manohar Reddy, has expressed disappointment over the Election Commission’s purported lack of response to complaints lodged against Chandrababu Naidu’s party for alleged violations of election regulations.
Speaking at a press conference held at the party’s central office on Saturday, Reddy highlighted that despite repeated complaints, the Election Commission had failed to take action against instances such as Bhuvaneswari’s alleged distribution of Rs 3 lakh in cash.

Reddy criticised the Election Commission’s silence in the face of what he described as malicious articles and false propaganda circulated by media outlets sympathetic to the TDP (Telugu Desam Party). He further alleged that inflammatory remarks made by figures such as Pawan Kalyan and Lokesh, which purportedly instigated violence against Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy, had been overlooked by the Election Commission.
Expressing doubts about the impartiality of the electoral process, Reddy asserted that the Election Commission’s apparent bias towards the opposition bloc raised concerns about the peaceful conduct of elections. He highlighted instances where officials complained against alliance leaders were swiftly transferred, which, according to Reddy, undermined the morale of the administrative apparatus.

Reddy also lamented the Election Commission’s alleged inaction in addressing false propaganda spread by alliance leaders regarding the Land Titling Act, despite numerous complaints filed by the YSRCP. Additionally, he criticized the lack of action against those responsible for burning copies of the Act, despite requests for legal intervention.

Drawing attention to recent visits by BJP leaders Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, and Rajnath Singh to Andhra Pradesh, Reddy noted the absence of discussions regarding the state’s future and development, and the failure to provide assurances.

Comparing the track records of political promises, Reddy accused Chandrababu Naidu of failing to fulfil his commitments to lawyers in 2014, while praising CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s administration for reportedly implementing 99% of its 2019 manifesto pledges. He cited the ‘Law Nestam’ initiative, highlighting the allocation of a Rs 100 crore fund to support junior lawyers as an example of the government’s support for legal professionals.
