Hyderabad, April 2 (IANS) A city court Wednesday dismissed the violation of election code case against actress-turned-Samajwadi Party MP Jayaprada and Telugu Desam Party leader P. Venugopalachary.

They were charged with violating the model code of conduct by addressing an election meeting beyond the stipulated time during 2002 municipal polls here. She was then a leader of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). A case in this regard was registered at Musheerabad police station.

Both Jayaprada and Venugopalachary appeared in Nampally criminal court here as the magistrate dismissed the case against them.

The actress-turned-politician welcomed the judgement and said it was a politically motivated case.

'Some people with vested interests had filed this case. We had to suffer a lot during the last six years. I am really happy and relieved over this judgement,' she told reporters.

'I obey the law whether I am in Uttar Pradesh or Andhra Pradesh,' she added.

The court had issued non-bailable warrants against them in 2005 for not appearing in the court. The magistrate later recalled the warrants.
