The Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress on Saturday met the ECI officials and requested it to deploy the additional companies of paramilitary forces in Andhra Pradesh on May 23 during the counting.

A party Delegation also urged the poll body to take action against Chittoor district Collector and Rapthadu returning officer for allegedly working for hand in gloves with the Andhra ruling Telugu Desam Party during the electoral process.

Talking to reporters after meeting the EC Officials in New Delhi, YSRCP National General Secretary V Vijayasai Reddy said, “We have reports that suggest the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP is planning to create a law and order problem at places where the results are going against them.

“We have requested the poll Commission to deploy additional Central Forces on a day on Counting in all centre in the state to combat any untoward incident,” Reddy added.

The YSRCP Delegation also urged the Election Commission to restrain Chittoor district
collector Pradyumna from taking part in the election duty on May 23 alleging that he is working on the direction of Telugu Desam Party.

Reacting on the ongoing controversy over re-polling in five polling stations in Chandragiri
and Chittoor Lok Sabha constituency, Reddy alleged that party candidate Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy had filed a complaint on April 12, but the poll Officer totally ignored the complaint.

The Poll Commission of India had on Wednesday ordered a re-polling in 5 booths of two Lok Sabha seats that have sparked controversy. TDP opposed the move calling EC of acting on bogus complaints.

The EC declared re-polling to be held on May 19 from 7 am to 6 pm.

Andhra Pradesh has a total of 175 state Assembly seats and 25 Lok Sabha seats. State Polls of Andhra Pradesh and National Polls were held Simultaneously on April 11.

Telugu Desam Party in the state is taking on Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP and Pawan Kalyan‘s Jana Sena Party who has forged an alliance with BSP for polls.
