    Election Commission initiates investigation into allegations against Palnadu DPO Vijayabhaskar Reddy

    ECI has ordered a probe against Palnadu DPO Vijayabhaskar Reddy. He was the webcasting and monitoring officer for the Macherla constituency that has witnessed poll-related violence.

    The Election Commission reprimanded K Chandrasekhar Rao of Bharat Rashtra Samithi and banned him from campaigning for 48 hours for his remarks against the Congress. The EC found his comments made on April 5 in Sircilla to be in violation of the model code of conduct.

    KCR used derogatory language towards the Congress, calling them names like “lathkhors” and accusing them of lying to win votes. He also made threatening remarks about biting throats if a bonus was not given. These comments were deemed objectionable by the EC.

    A complaint was filed by TPCC senior vice-president G Niranjan, leading to a show cause notice issued to KCR. In his defense, KCR claimed that his statements were in line with the Telangana dialect and meant as criticism of Congress policies, not personal attacks.

    The ECI pointed out that political criticism should focus on policies and programs, not personal aspects of individuals. Since KCR’s explanation did not satisfy the EC, the ban on his campaign activities was imposed for 48 hours.
