mullappaly

KOZHIKODE: KPCC President Mullappally Ramachandran has demanded a judicial inquiry into the allegations of bogus voting and tampering with the electoral list in the Lok Sabha elections.

“Even my daughter -in- law who had exercised her franchise in the previous polls found that her name had been deleted from the list after reaching the polling station, “Ramachandran said.

He alleged that Block Level Officers, of whom 90% were affiliated to the Left unions, had been trained to tamper with the voters’ list. Likewise, a large section of Deputy Tahsildars, who were authorized to add or remove names in the electoral rolls, had not followed the procedures, he claimed.

Ramachandran also urged the Chief Electorate Officer Teeka Ram Meena to be impartial in dealing with the issues pointed out by AICC general secretary and former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy that the names of nearly 10 lakh voters were missing from the electoral rolls in the State.

Ramachandran said that the KPCC had constituted a high- level committee led by K.C. Joseph to collect evidence from districts regarding bogus voting and submit a report. This report would be presented to the CEO in Kerala and Chief Election Commission to take necessary action.
