Asaduddin Owaisi, MIM chief and Hyderabad Lok Sabha candidate alleged that A K Mohanty, Director General of Police (DGP) was showing bias while dealing with political parties. He said that the DGP had overstepped his official duties to ensure the victory of the Telugu Desam Party from his constituency.
Facing a barrage of TV cameras, Owasi dare the DGP to shed his uniform and contest against him in election.
He was reacting to the re-poll ordered in some of the booths in his constituency.
According to Election Commission sources, the Chief Electoral Officer has taken a serious note of the remarks of Owasi since the DGP is also an electoral official.
Observers say that Owasi might get into serious trouble with the Code of Conduct.
