NELLORE: School Education Minister N. Rajyalakshmi appears to be in trouble with the Election Commission ordering a probe into the violation of secrecy of vote during the Council elections from the Local Authorities' Constituencies.

The CEOs of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu will conduct `open' enquiry here on Friday to ascertain how the secrecy of ballot and other provisions were flouted.

Meanwhile, several Congress leaders, particularly those belonging to Visakhapatnam MP N. Janardhana Reddy's group, are worried how to handle the situation in the wake of evidence against the Minister.
