Hyderabad: Barring a few complaints pertaining to distribution of money to influence voters, the polls to the urban local bodies are passing off in an incident-free manner across the State on Wednesday.

Arguments and counter-arguments took place between candidates and their followers on distributing money. The police immediately swung into action and dispersed the two groups.
