A Division Bench of the Hyderabad High Court directed Congress MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy to submit a reply to a petition that accuses him of furnishing false information regarding his educational qualification. Even the Election Commission was ordered to file FIRs against the candidates who mislead with false affidavit.
TRS Candidate Dubbaka Narsimha who got defeated by Komatireddy in Nalgonda Assembly segment in recent general elections appealed the EC to reject the nomination of the former minister on grounds of fake claims. As it is impractical for EC to verify the credentials of the candidates within a short span after the nominations were filed, Komatireddy escaped disqualification but he is in trouble as the case reached the court now.
In 2009 Polls too, Komatireddy claimed he is an Engineering Graduate and he became a minister after his victory. As per OU, Mr.Reddy began studying BE course in 1983 but he failed in the first year and subsequent semester exams. From 1989, He stopped registering and later his admission too was cancelled. So, Mr. Reddy might be disqualified!
