    The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is facing criticism for lower poll percentages in Hyderabad and Secundrabad compared to other areas in the state. Voters are upset because the GHMC deleted their votes without following proper procedures. This led to protests in Shekpet.

    Union Minister and Telangana BJP chief G Kishan Reddy visited polling stations in Secundrabad and found that about 3,000 votes were deleted in the Shekpet division. Many of these voters had cast their votes in the last State Assembly elections. The officials deleted their votes intentionally, according to Reddy.

    Deleted voters were given Voter Information Slips a week before the elections, leading them to believe that their names were on the voter’s list. However, they were shocked to find out that their votes were deleted when they arrived at polling booths.
