SAD calls for all-party meet­ing

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - PUNJAB HINDUSTANTIMES -

CHANDIGARH: The Shi­ro­mani Akali Dal urged the State Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (SEC) to con­vene an all-party meet­ing to lis­ten to the sug­ges­tions and griev­ances of the po­lit­i­cal par­ties be­fore Lud­hi­ana MC polls. A writ­ten re­quest was sent to the com­mis­sion by SAD spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema on Tues­day.

Cheema al­leged short­com­ings in the re­cently held civic polls claim­ing the no­ti­fi­ca­tion was done with­out pre­par­ing voter lists. He ap­pealed to the com­mis­sion to en­sure that all of­fi­cers who are com­pe­tent to is­sue NOCS must be avail­able in their of­fices to all the nom­i­nees and should not sit at the houses of rul­ing party MLAS. Sim­i­larly at the time of fil­ing of nom­i­na­tions if there is any de­fi­ciency in the papers it should be pointed out in writing to the nom­i­nees to avoid any dis­pute later on.
