Election Commission take serious note of attacks on presiding officers
July 7, 2014 - Hyderabad
The State Election Commission (SEC) took a serious note on the attacks on Presiding Officers in the elections that took place in Mandal and Zilla Parishad.
The SEC directed the District Collectors of Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam, Nellore and West Godavari to identify the persons involved and book criminal cases and investigate into the incidents.
It may be recalled here that the YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday met the Governor ESL Narasimhan and urged him to save democracy by taking actions on those involved in the incidents. He said that TDP government suppressed the voice of the opposition by intimidating YSRC municipal councilors, MPTC and ZPTC members and resorting to poaching and baiting them with monetary and other benefits for undue political gain.
