It may be recalled that Vishnu won the president’s post with the majority of 100 votes against his opponent Prakash Raj. Later, Prakash Raj and Naga Babu resigned to their MAA membership stating that the association is filled with narrow-mindedness and regional feelings.

On Tuesday, Prakash Raj along with his panel members spoke to the media alleging that cross-voting took place in the elections. He said he has been discussing with his panel to arrive at a decision after witnessing severe injustice during the counting of votes.

Postal ballot voting was unfair, the results and the numbers have gone upside down overnight, he said. Prakash Raj said his members and supporters would come out of the association and stand by the members who elected them in the polls.

“I have resigned from MAA primary membership. Manchu Vishnu said that he would not accept it. But on one condition, I would withdraw my resignation only if the Manchu panel stop making by-laws ‘only a Telugu should contest in MAA elections hereafter’ immediately after being sworn in as president. I don’t want to be a member of MAA just to vote and elect someone,” Prakash Raj said.
