Irregularities in voters' list in Holenarasipur: AC

Assistant Commissioner H L Nagaraju on Friday said these were of irregularities in the voters' list of Holenarasipur Assembly constituency.

Speaking at a meeting here Nagaraju said that according to the Election Commission, there should be an average of 69% voters of the total population in the list. But there are 80.82% in the voter's list.

According to available information, since three years not a single name has been deleted from the list in 22 polling booths. Does that mean that there was no death since three years, or no one migrated to another place? Such irresponsible work will not be tolerated, he warned.

He directed the officials concerned to ensure that the names of the deceased and those living elsewhere should be deleted, or will face action by the Election Commission. He warned of action against tahsildar if the irregularities are proved.
