MBT Alleges Poll Irregularities—Demands Probe

Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) has demanded the state government to order a probe into the South Zone DCP V Satyanarayana’s role in poll irregularities in Old City during GHMC elections held recently.
MBT leader and former Corporator Amjed Ullah Khan addressed a meeting of party workers at Mehdi Function hall near Dabeerpura Bridge on Monday night. Amjed alleged that it was the Hyderabad City Police which directly contested elections against MBT in Azampura and Akbar Bagh wards and resorted to all unethical means to defeat it.
Amjed Ullah Khan alleged that the DCP and a few other police officials acted like agents of MIM on the polling day and ensured that the MBT is denied free and fair elections. “DCP remained silent on the rowdism exhibited by MIM goons led by Asaduddin Owaisi. He issued directions to all his subordinates not to obstruct over 200-member gang led by Asaduddin Owaisi and other MIM MLAs which were roaming on the streets of Old City on the polling day. They moved from one place to another intimidating the voters and political opponents and carried out physical attacks in the presence of police personnel”, he said.
The MBT leader said that the DCP’s main focus was Azampura ward. “Dabeerpura inspector Muttaiah bound over all MBT workers of Chanchalgida, Farhat Nagar, Kattalguda and Osmanpura in Azampura ward although none of them were involved in a single petty offence. On the polling day, the inspector and two SIs of Dabeerpura police station selectively arrested 25 active MBT workers and polling agents from Chanchalguda and other areas between 9am to 11am. He even snatched the mobile phone of MBT candidate Asma Khatoon to prevent her from communicating with party workers and leaders and handed over the mobile phone only after polling ended. On the other side, MIM agents were allowed to carry mobile phones in polling booths. The said inspector of Dabeerpura even arrested young girls from polling booth who were going to cast their votes in Community Hall, Chanchaguda and kept under illegal detention in Dabeerpura police station without any female staff”, he said.(NSS)
