EC suspends 106 govt employees in Telangana:- On Tuesday, the Election Commission suspended a total of 106 government employees in Telangana's Siddipet district for violating the model code of conduct. This action was taken after the employees attended a meeting organized by the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), which was called by P Venkatarami Reddy, a former IAS officer-turned-politician and BRS candidate for the Medak Lok Sabha seat. Reddy and another BRS leader were also accused of holding the meeting without permission from the election authorities, resulting in an FIR being filed against them. The suspension of the government employees came after a complaint was lodged by the BJP candidate for the Medak Lok Sabha seat, M Raghunandan Rao. Rao alleged that the staff of the District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) had attended a meeting where money was distributed. Upon investigation, the district returning officer's flying squad found that 10-15 employees were present at the function hall.

CCTV footage retrieved from the function hall owner confirmed that 106 government employees had attended the meeting and money had been exchanged. As a result, all of them were suspended on Tuesday. The former Siddipet collector, who later ran for MLC with the BRS, found himself in a controversy when he paid his respects to the former chief minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao, by touching his feet. Additionally, his family's real estate company successfully acquired important parcels of land during the Kokapet land auctions.
