Some have chatting tendency wherever they are present and generally make potential claims with uncontrollable waggery. If politicians have it, they would be a point of news for media.
Did the same jest of TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy land him in trouble due to model code of conduct in place when he talked about expenditure in the recent elections?
It seems so with the report of Returning officer of Tadipatri to the district collector about the comments made by mouth trotting MP.
Recently JC Diwakar Reddy made a statement about the expenditure incurred in elections for him individually and for political parties in Andhra Pradesh as a whole. He said that he spent around Rs. 50 cr to ensure the victory of his son in Tadipatri. Not limiting to his own expenditure, he said that all the political parties in AP spent between Rs. 8,000 cr to Rs. 10,000 cr in the recently concluded general elections.
As usual, his comments caused a commotion in media and were viral on social media. However, as it is the time in which model code of conduct of elections in place, YSRCP, and other political parties complained to returning officer of Tadipatri. He, in turn, submitted a report to district collector of Ananthapur. The returning officer reportedly considered the comments of JC as a violation of the code of conduct.
As the report is now with the collector, sources say that the ground is set for action against the TDP MP. Collector was not available to take his comments about the possible action on JC Diwakar Reddy.
