64% turnout in Tirupati bypoll

Amaravati: About 60-64 per cent turnout was recorded in the bypoll to the Tirupati (SC) Lok Sabha constituency in Andhra Pradesh, even as opposition parties alleged large-scale casting of bogus votes and sought cancellation of the election. The Election Commission heard rival claims on the bogus voting, but did not spell out its stand, though state Chief Electoral Officer K Vijayanand earlier issued a statement saying he asked the Collectors of SPS Nellore and Chittoor districts in which the Tirupati Lok Sabha segment is spread over to crack down on bogus voters and ensure a fair poll. —PTI
