Official Denies Reports Of Large Scale Omissions In Telangana Voters List


Telangana Chief Electoral Officer Rajat Kumar Wednesday rejected reports that lakhs of names were missing in the voters’ list in the December 7 assembly elections in the state.

Noting that there was an elaborate process, including multiple level scrutiny, in the preparation of the voters’ list, he said it was not correct to say that names of a large number of voters were missing.

“There was lot of scrutiny. We have conducted three to four meetings with all political parties on this particular issue. All the complaints related to this were duly inquired. So it is not correct to say that large number of voters are missing,” he said.

On the polling day, the CEO had apologised to those who could not vote as their names did not figure in the list and said the mistakes would be rectified.
