Transfer fever: Dakshina Kannada judge hasn't voted for last 32 years!

Every district administration in the state is taking extra care to ensure that the maximum number of voters get a chance to vote in the 2018 Karnataka Assembly polls.

But the Dakshina Kannada Principal District and Sessions Judge K S Bilagi has claimed that he has been unable to exercise his franchise for the last 32 years because he has been transferred during election time repeatedly.  

"I was transferred during election season, repeatedly.  I have not got a chance to vote for the last 32 years," he said while addressing the audience at the blood donation camp inauguration, organised as a part of a voter awareness programme.

"When I was in Bengaluru, I was transferred during elections and prior to that, when I went to a polling booth in Kalaburagi, my name was not in the voters' list... and this has been going on for the last 32 years," he rued.

"This election will be the last election during my service and I have submitted an application to include my name in the voters' list," he said adding, that he is anxiously waiting to vote for the first time in his service.
