SAD calls for all-party meeting
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.
