Andhra Pradesh conducted its Assembly and Lok Sabha elections on the 11th of April. During the elections, the State witnessed approximately 25 violent cases and murders as well.
During the clashes between the YSRCP and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP,) one member from each party lost their lives. The malfunctioning of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) was also a major issue during the polls.
Mr. Reddy also discussed the law and order situation in the State and alleged Naidu of indulging in violence after the elections were over in AP.
Jagan Mohan Reddy also held Naidu responsible for the threatening situation and growing violence in AP after Naidu complained about the malfunctioning of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs.)
Mr. Naidu, the President of the TDP, disappointed with the polling, alleged the Election Commission (EC) of conducting such poor polls and demanded re elections in some of the areas of AP.
Though the voter turnout was 80 % in AP, Mr. Naidu was upset and complained to the EC about several issues during the polls. He said, approximately 380 EVMs malfunctioned, which affected the polling process in Andhra Pradesh, whereas in many places, the polls were stopped and or began late.
Jagan Mohan Reddy submitted his complaints to Mr. Narsimham and demanded action against the Naidu led TDP. He also met the Election Commission (EC) of Delhi and filed a complaint about the same.
The results of the Andhra Pradesh Lok Sabha and Assembly elections will be announced on the 23rd of May.
