Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Saturday alleged that YSR Congress Party president Jaganmohan Reddy violated the model code of conduct by stretching his road show beyond stipulated time limit at Mylavaram town in Krishna district.

“Jagan continued his road show at Mylavaram till 12 midnight on Friday, but police did not react and fail to take action against him,” TDP leader Devineni Umamaheswara Rao, who is contesting from Mylavaram Assembly seat, told reporters today.

Rao and his party’s Lok Sabha nominee Kesineni Srinivas have lodged a complaint with the district election officer in this regard.

He claimed that YSR Congress activists “manhandled” TDP activists at A. Konduru and Khambhampadu villages in which about 10 workers were injured.

Meanwhile, Jagan will hold road shows at Nandigama and Jaggaihpet Assembly constituencies today.

He had embarked on holding the road shows on April 30 and has so far covered 12 Assembly constituencies in the district.

Jai Samaikhyandhra Party president and former chief minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy is scheduled to conduct a similar public event here in the evening.
