PATHANAMTHITTA: An official, LD clerk Yadu Krishna, has been suspended in connection with leaking list of polling officials in Pathanamthitta. It was found that the list given in PDF format to prepare the flux to be placed in the centres where the polling materials are distributed was mistakenly sent to the group of officials . The district electoral officer has said that the problem has been solved by changing the officials after the developments.

The action was taken after the UDF candidate Anto Antony protested that it was an attempt to allow bogus votes.

"There are very nefarious strategies going on to sabotage the elections. Most of the polling officers appointed here belong to the Left. Their list was leaked to left-wing organizations. This list is being circulated everywhere pointing out that their man is the polling officer at this particular booth, where they can cast bogus votes. This cannot be accepted. Is there a history orders from the Collectorate specifying the polling officers are leaked? Now it has gone out," he alleged.

Anto Antony said that he will meet the collector directly and file a complaint. LDF candidate Thomas Isaac has not yet responded to the allegation.
