Amaravati: YSR Congress party general secretary V Vijayasai Reddy alleged that the returning officer of Guntur Lok Sabha segment had illegally declared the result without taking into the account 9,700 votes of postal ballots. He informed that the party would challenge the TDP MP Galla Jayadev’s victory from the constituency in the court.

The YSRCP leader took to Twitter to make the announcement on Tuesday. “In counting of postal ballots in Guntur parliamentary constituency, the returning officer had clearly shown favouritism,” he alleged.


It may be recalled that YSRCP MP candidates from Guntur and Srikakulam have been alleging that the returning officers had announced the results without counting the postal ballots. Modgula Venugopal Reddy and Duvvada Srinivas, the YSRCP candidates from Guntur and Srikakulam had already called on party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy about the issue. It is learnt that YS Jagan had already given a go ahead to the leaders to challenge TDP victories in the court.

In Guntur, TDP nominee Galla Jayadev managed to win the seat with slender majority of 4,205 against YSRCP’s Modgula Venugopal Reddy. Similarly, TDP’s Kinjarapu Ram Mohan Naidu won Srikakulam seat with a majority of 6,658 votes. Given that the majorities are relatively smaller, YSRCP candidates allege it is illegal on the part of ROs to declare postal ballot as invalid pointing at some minor errors. The ROs in both cases declared postal ballots running up to 9,000 votes as invalid as certain prescribed and mandatory 13-C was not written on the envelope.
