KCR al­ter­ing elec­toral rolls, al­leges Cong

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - | POLITICS POLICY -

New Delhi: Congress on Sun­day ac­cused the K Chan­drashekar Rao-led Te­lan­gana gov­ern­ment of try­ing to vi­ti­ate the as­sem­bly polls by in­ter­fer­ing with the process through which dis­crep­an­cies and in­ac­cu­ra­cies in the elec­toral rolls would have been cor­rected.

De­mand­ing that the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion in­ter­vene to ver­ify and sani­tise voter lists, Congress spokesper­son Ab­hishek Singhvi said a pre­lim­i­nary ex­am­i­na­tion sug­gested that the prob­lem of du­pli­cates, deleted vot­ers and disqual­i­fied vot­ers was far more acute in Te­lan­gana than imag­ined. “Close to 70 lakh vot­ers are found to be falling in these three cat­e­gories,” Singhvi said.

“Rao rushed to an­nounce the dates for Te­lan­gana as­sem­bly polls and chose to ig­nore the nu­mer­ous dis­crep­an­cies in the voter list which erode the in­tegrity of the polls, when­ever they are con­ducted,” he said.
