Brother Anil Kumar, evangelist and son-in-law of Dr YS Rajasekhar Reddy, chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, along with two other pastors, was found in possession of Rs. 10.40 lakh in cash at a lodge in Karimnagar.
The Telugu Desam Party submitted a complaint to the Chief Electoral Officer I. V. Subba Rao that pastor Anil Kumar had been using religious forums for soliciting votes in favour of the Congress party.
The TDP alleged that Anil Kumar was conducting Christian religious meetings and distributing pamphlets entitled Prayer for Elections. The pamphlets claimed that it was because of similar prayer meetings in the 2004 elections, YSR could form the government.
The EC is conducting investigation into these incidents.
