Malkajgiri MP and Telangana Congress Working President A Revanth Reddy received a blow in the Telangana High Court today in the cash-for-vote case.
The court dismissed his petition without even hearing it.
In his petition, Reddy told the court that the cash-for-vote case would not come under the purview of the Election Commission of India, and urged the court to pass orders in his favour, but the court clearly did not care too much.
Reddy had faced a similar experience in the ACB court earlier, too. The ACB court too had rejected his petition. He then approached the HC challenging the order of the ACB court.
The hearing in the cash-for-vote case has been going on for the last six years in the ACB court. Reddy was caught red-handed by the ACB while offering money to then nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson (Stephenson was given another term as nominated MLA after that by the TRS).
