Coop poll process under Cong, TDP assault

Hyderabad, Jan 25,
2013: Making a mockery of the election process set in motion for the
Cooperative society polls and fearing defeat at the hands of the YSR
Congress Party, both Congress and TDP have been resorting to a series of
unethical measures to rig the elections.

In an all out assault on
the cooperative system, the two parties, which are in cahoots with each other, are
unleashing a wave of terror on the YSRCP candidates with the support of the officials.
In most of the places, they are putting up combined candidates to defeat
YSRCP-supported candidates.

While at some places
the names of the voters supporting YSR Congress are being removed from the
lists, officials are helping the two parties by rejecting the nominations of
YSRCP candidates in some of the societies.

YSR Congress Party
leader Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy alleged in Nellore that officials, acting under
pressure from Minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy’s brother Anam Vijayakumar, have
rejected several nominations of YSRCP candidates.

In another instance,
YSRCP candidate’s nomination was rejected by the officials at Jonnalagadda in
Narsaraopet Mandalam of Guntur district. Mild tension prevailed in the village
with YSRCP leaders questioning the rejection and arguing with the officials.

YSRCP leaders found 300
names of the party’s supporters missing from the voters’ lists in several
villages of Byragipatteda single window cooperative society in Tirupati rural
Mandalam of Chittor district. Later they lodged a complaint with the officials.
Elsewhere in the district, officials postponed elections to 11 societies with
the fear of losing polls to YSRCP. Both TDP and Congress are acting at the
behest of each other in these places.

In several districts including
East Godavari, YSR, Khammam and Sri PSR Nellore, the candidates of either TDP
or Congress are contesting to ensure the defeat of YSRCP candidates.
