In polling stations 146-150, relatives of the YSRC candidate forcibly entered and resorted to rigging, the TDP president added.

"The entire polling process has been vitiated in these polling stations. The mandate of people is not reflected in view of the violence caused by the YSRC nominees," Naidu alleged.
