Amaravati: The ruling YSRCP has decided to file defamation cases against those people who are allegedly spreading false propaganda that the party has been threatening candidates to withdraw nominations from the civic polls.
Addressing media at party central office here on Thursday, government spokesman Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said it was not possible to threaten someone to withdraw nomination when technology is being used.
He asserted that the results of the panchayat elections will be repeated in the forthcoming municipal elections. Ramakrishna Reddy said the urban body elections will be held to 12 corporations and 75 municipalities and YSRCP would sweep in civic polls. He said Chandrababu Naidu is a habitual liar and it has been proved once again through TDP's manifesto.
He released a pamphlet with details of the schemes implemented since YSRCP came to power and said it should be widely publicized in towns and cities. He said YSRCP is going for civic polls with the slogan: "Support the good governance in forthcoming municipal elections".
Ramakrishna Reddy said the YSRCP government has been planning to build townships and supply safe drinking water in towns and cities.
