vote

KANNUR: Kannur District Collector rejected the complaints filed by the UDF alleging irregularities in the vote-from-home procedure. After examining the complaint, the District Collector informed that there are no irregularities in Peravoor and Payyanur. According to the investigation report, the helper voted according to the procedure in both places.

The UDF members alleged that the vote of Kalyani (106) belonging to booth 123 of Peravoor panchayat was recorded by a CPM Peravoor Banglamkunnu branch committee member. In the complaint given to the Collector by the UDF, it is said that Kalyani was pressured in the presence of polling officials to cast her vote. However, the investigation found that the voter and her daughter were the ones who suggested the helper who cast Kalyani's vote.

The second complaint was that the vote of V Madhavan Velichappadu (92) from booth 54 of Korom village, Payyanur, Kannur constituency, was cast by a CPM branch secretary. Yesterday morning, the UDF had lodged a complaint with the constituency collector stating that the officials who came to Madhavan Velichappadu's house only took his fingerprints and did not give him the ballot paper. However, the investigation found that here also the helper was permitted on the recommendation of the voter. Based on this, the collector rejected the complaints.
