Charging the Telugy Desam Party government with misusing of official machinery to win over numbers in the civic body elections, YSR Congress Party on Thursday said it was only to boast that they could get seats despite not implementing the poll promises but in reality people are vexed with the policies of the ruling party.
“TDP has been misusing money and official machinery and is trying every trick in the book to lure the municipal corporators and ward members and is engineering defections, all at the behest of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu,” party official spokesperson Vasireddy Padma said.
At Jamalamadugu, where YSRCP has absolute majority, the election was postponed though there was quorum which shows gross misuse of official machinery by TDP.
At Chirala, MLA Amanchi Krishna Mohan was attacked as he supported YSRCP. At all places the members are lured, coerced, kidnapped or threatened only to get the numbers to win the top spot in the civic body polls.
"We have already complained locally and had taken up the issue with the State Election Commission but there was no tangible result. The TDP has been mobilizing all its forces as if the stakes are high as it did not move an inch towards fulfilling the poll promises. This is only to show off that they are getting numbers even without implementing poll promises but people will react at an opportune time in an appropriate manner. Such victory has no sanctity,” she said
