Caught On Cam: Madhavi Latha Booked For Checking IDs Of Burqa-Clad Women Voters In Hyderabad

In a controversial turn of events during the fourth phase of Lok Sabha elections, Madhavi Latha, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Hyderabad, ignited a heated debate on Monday.

Her request for burqa-clad Muslim women at a polling booth to unveil their faces for identification purposes, aligning them with the photographs on their voter ID cards, sparked immediate controversy.

The emergence of a video from the polling booth further intensified the dispute.

This incident unfolds amidst a closely watched electoral battle between Madhavi Latha and Owaisi in Hyderabad, a constituency where Owaisi secured a significant victory in the previous Lok Sabha elections.
