Congress party has taken strong exception to the reported permission given to minister in the caretaker government K.T. Rama Rao for attending a programme in Singapore and IT Secretary Jayesh Ranjan seeking permission in this regard from the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) in violation of the code.

Former minister Marri Shashidhar Reddy said the CEO is not taking any action against the violations by the officials close to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and sought immediate action against Mr. Jayesh Ranjan as his decision was a violation of election code.

Mr. Reddy said the election authorities served a violation notice on TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy for attending a meeting of the Bishops but when the TRS leaders, including minister in the caretaker government T. Harish Rao, attends a meeting of Yadava caste groups there is no action against him.
