Hyderabad: Ahead of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections, the ruling YSRCP has written a scathing letter to the Chief Electoral Officer over the alleged collection of personal data of student’s family members by Narayana Educational Institutions, which has links with the TDP Party, in Nellore District of Andhra Pradesh.

The letter further mentions that the founder of Narayana Educational Institutions, Dr. P. Narayana, is not only an educationist but also an active politician and an active member of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
