EC notice on TRS ex-MLA for bribing voters!

Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLA in the recently dissolved assembly Enugu Ravinder Reddy representing Yellareddy constituency in Nizamabad district landed in trouble with the Election Commission of India ordering action against him for allegedly trying to bribe the local voters.

Yellareddy tehsildar on Thursday lodged a complaint with the local police against Ravinder Reddy as per the directions of Nizamabad district collector, who in turn got the order from the Election Commission.

Recently a video of Ravinder Reddy offering bribe to a woman came out, much to the embarrassment of the outgoing MLA.

In the video which went viral in the social media, Ravinder Reddy was seen negotiating an amount of Rs 5 lakh with women supporters for taking an oath to vote for his party.

He was asking the women to organize a meeting of 50 women’s self-help groups for taking an oath to vote for the TRS, party chief K Chandrashekhar Rao and himself and he had offered to pay Rs 5 lakh in cash.

One of the women was found asking the ex-MLA as to how Rs 5 lakh could be enough to organize the meeting and his followers told her that they could expect more after the meeting.

The video, which has surfaced after the model code of conduct has kicked in on September 6, may spell trouble for the Reddy.
