TRS lodged a complaint with the Election Commission of India (ECI) against BJP candidate Eatala Rajender and his supporters for allegedly distributing money in an organised manner by opening new bank accounts across the Huzurabad constituency ahead of byelections. Rajender and his supporters particularly one Bhadrayya, are being accused of resorting to depositing money into these bank accounts in order to withdraw and deposit the money to voters on the eve of the polling on October 30.

In a complaint to Chief Electoral Officer Shashank Goel here on Friday, TRS general secretary M Sreenivas Reddy, secretary G Ramachandra Rao and MLA Ch Kranthi Kiran urged the ECI to conduct a thorough investigation into the issue and ascertain how many of these new accounts were opened in Huzurabad Assembly constituency areas in recent times. They alleged that by depositing money into these accounts, BJP and its candidate Eatala Rajender, were resorting to corrupt practices to purchase votes to win the bypolls illegally.

The TRS leaders alleged that though several illegal activities of the BJP and its candidate were brought to the notice of ECI, no action has been taken so far despite providing ‘impeccable evidence’ against Eatala Rajender and his followers. 

They emphasised the need to investigate the latest complaint without lapse of time failing which it could cause irrepairable loss to TRS’ legitimate prospects in the bypolls and cause immense damage to the democratic process.
