Here's what she said

Speaking about the video, the BJP leader said that she had only requested the women to verify their identity and there was nothing wrong with this.? "I am a candidate. As per law candidate has the right to check the ID cards without the facemasks. I am not a man, I am a woman and with a lot of humbleness, I have only requested them - can I please see and verify with the ID cards? If somebody wants to make a big issue out of it, that means they are scared," she said.

Earlier in the day, Madhavi Latha had alleged discrepancies in the voter list in her constituency.

Madhavi Latha said, "The Police personnel seem very dull, they are not active...They are not checking anything. Senior citizen voters are coming here but their names are deleted from the list. A few of them are residents of Goshamahal but their names are in the list of Rangareddy."

Earlier, the BJP candidate voted at a polling booth in the constituency. She is pitted against MP and AIMIM candidate Asaduddin Owaisi and BRS' Gaddam Srinivas Yadav from this high-profile seat.

CM Revanth Reddy responds

On being asked about a video where BJP candidate Madhavi Latha is seen checking the IDs of voters, Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy says "I have not seen (the video) but BJP is simply trying to polarise Muslim votes to win but all these issues are going to help Asaduddin Owaisi. It is not going to benefit BJP..."

Lok Sabha elections Phase 4

Polling for the 17 Lok Sabha seats in Telangana was underway.?Polling which began at 7 am will end by 6 pm, barring at a few places where it will conclude two hours earlier.

As many as 625 candidates, including Union Minister and Telangana BJP chief Kishan Reddy, Bandi Sanjay Kumar and senior leader Etala Rajender are among the saffron party's candidates while the Congress has fielded among others, BRS turncoats Danam Nagender and K Kavya.
