■ SAS NA­GAR: Some res­i­dents re­turned dis­ap­pointed from polling sta­tions, as they were un­able to find their names on the elec­toral list. In many cases, names got omit­ted as these per­sons failed to get their res­i­den­tial ad­dresses changed with the deputy com­mis­sioner's (DC) of­fice.

Ra­j­pal Singh, res­i­dent of Phase 3, could not find his pname on the list be­cause of which he could not cast vote de­spite hav­ing a voter card. Sim­i­larly, Gur­cha­ran Singh, who had moved to Phase 2, could not get his ad­dress changed with the DC of­fice. He claimed to have taken up the is­sue with the re­turn­ing of­fi­cer who had as­sured him that he could cast the vote. But, he was not al­lowed to do the same when he reached the polling booth at Phase 2 on Mon­day.

Be­sides, there were many oth­ers who could not cast their votes as their names were deleted from the list.
