Rs 5.24 Cr transfer from Sushee Infra: ECI ask Rajagopal to explain

Hyderabad: Election Commission of India (ECI) has issued a notice to BJP's candidate Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy for allegedly transferring Rs 5.24 crore to induce voters in the Munugode assembly constituency.

The notice was issued after TRS General Secretary Soma Bharath Kumar approached ECI alleging the transfer of Rs.5.24, crore from Reddy's family-owned firm Sushee Infra and Mining Limited Company to 23 different persons and companies in the Munugode Assembly constituency. The TRS alleged that this money was used for voter inducement.

Further, ECI said if the money was used for voter inducement, it falls under corrupt practices and is a violation of the moral code of conduct (MCC) followed during elections.

"As a transferrer, if done by you or under your direction by a family-owned company as alleged, it is a duty cast on you to ensure that this fund transferred to 23 different bank accounts are not used for voter inducement as alleged, which is a corrupt practice," read the ECI notice.

ECI asked Rajagopal Reddy to clarify all aspects regarding the alleged transaction on or before 4 pm on 31 October.
