Hyderabad: The PCC has appointed a three-member committee to look into the results of MLC elections from local body Constituencies and asked it to submit its report by the end of May.
In a press note issued on Saturday, the PCC Chief Mr D Srinivas said that the committee would study the reasons for the defeat of party candidates in various districts in recent MLC elections from Local Body Constituencies. The former ministers Mr Mandali Budha Prasad and Mr M Kodanda Reddy, and Mr M Hanumantha Rao are the three leaders appointed as the Committee members.
It may be recalled that the Congress party candidates in Kadapa, Chittoor, East and West Godavari districts have lost the elections though the party had adequate number of votes. The Committee would study the issue of back- stabbing by the leaders in the districts concerned and would submit the report to the PCC. (NSS)
