Mumbai, Apr 25 UNI | 3 months ago

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Kirit Somaiya today filed a complaint with police for the alleged deletion of the voters' names from the voters' list in the city.

Talking to reporters here, Mr Somaiya said,"The names of 40,000 voters had been missing from the voters' list and therefore they were barred from exercising their right.'

He said he has demanded a stern action against officials responsible for the act.

Mr Somaiya further said,"There are people who were voting for years together, but this time their names were missing from the voters' list."

On the contrary, names of some people were found on the deleted list of the voters and therefore they were debarred from voting, he claimed.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) leader Bala Nandgaonkar has also lodged a similar complaint with State Election commissioner demanding the re-poll.

Mr Nandgaonkar further said they will file a case in the Bombay High Court to get justice for the people who were unable to exercise their vote.
