Hyderabad, Jul 3 (UNI) Senior Congress leader and MLA G Muddu Krishnam Naidu said Telugu Desam Party Chief N Chandrababu Naidu was making unnecessary allegations against the Congress Party and the State Election Commission (SEC) only due to "their fear of defeat in the recently concluded local body elections in the state.'
