Police booked case against Telugu Desam MLA from Vinukonda G.V. Anjaneyulu for violating model code of conduct in the run up to the panchayat elections.

He reportedly distributed spectacles at a programme held at Moogachintalapalem in Bollapalli mandal three days ago. Basing on reports which had appeared in local newspapers, the Collector instructed the RDO to prepare a report. The police, on the other hand, booked cases under section 171 (C), (E), IPC against the MLA for trying to unduly influence the electors and indulging in electoral malpractices, after getting permission from the local magistrate. DSP, Narsaraopet, Y. Venkatrami Reddy said that the offence was a non-cognisable one.
