HYDERABAD: With 52 police cases against his name, BJP’s Soyam Bapu Rao has topped the list of candidates in the fray that face charges of violation of law, in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections from Telangana. The 52-year-old, who is contesting from Adilabad Parliamentary constituency, has police cases registered against him in Hyderabad and Adilabad districts.
