Under fire from people who found their names deleted from the voters’ list, the Election Commission (EC) Friday offered its apology and said it would start a fresh enrollment drive for voters across Maharashtra from May 20.
“We will look into the matter. We apologise for the inconvenience caused to voters,” Election Commissioner H S Brahma said. “There is nothing that can be done for the people whose names were left out. However, we will start a new enrollment exercise across the state from May 20,” Chief Electoral Officer Nitin Gadre said.
The opposition parties in the state had strongly protested over the issue of missing voters and alleged a conspiracy.
According to state BJP president Devendra Fadnavis, it was decided at a meeting held in Mumbai on Friday that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, BJP’s Gopinath Munde and RPI’s Ramdas Athawale would meet the Chief Election Commissioner next week and urge him to hold polling again in areas where people could not vote since their names were missing from the electoral rolls.
