Nara Lokesh nomination papers were held back by the Election Officer due to some technical reasons, it is reliably learnt.
A final call is expected to be taken by Returning Officer tomorrow afternoon.
Nara Lokesh has filed his nomination papers on Friday amidst huge fanfare.
A host of youngsters and senior party leaders accompanied him to the Election Officer’s office at Mangalagiri in Guntur district. A massive bike rally was also taken out in support of their IT minister by party activists raising slogans ‘Jai Chandrababu Naidu and Jai Lokesh Babu’.
According to informed sources, the objection was due to the notary, who has done Lokesh papers belongs to Krishna district, where as his address is in neighboring Guntur.
The Election Officer apparently pointed out this technicality and assured him to let his decision known by tomorrow.
As per the rules, such nomination is invalid.
However, Telugu Desam Party workers are confident that it would be resolved amicably.
