The Indian Express - - GOVT &P -


New Delhi: Wor­ried over the de­clin­ing num­ber of dis­placed Kash­miri Pan­dit elec­tors, a BJP del­e­ga­tion met Chief Elec­tion Com­mis­sioner Nasim Zaidi on Thurs­day, seek­ing sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of the voter reg­is­tra­tion process for them.

The party del­e­ga­tion wanted the poll panel to do away with the re­quire­ment of fill­ing up the M-form, which re­quires mi­grant Pan­dits to sub­mit sev­eral doc­u­ments be­fore elec­tions that re­sults in many gen­uine vot­ers not get­ting regis­tered.

“We urged the CEC to in­tro­duce on­line fa­cil­i­ties to reg­is­ter. He promised to look into it,” Anil Baluni, head of BJP’S me­dia depart­ment, said.

The del­e­ga­tion in­cluded Union min­is­ters Mukhtar Ab­bas Naqvi and Ji­ten­dra Singh. ENS
