Ex-cricketer Bedi's name missing from voters' list

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Furious over not finding his name in the voters' list, former Singh said officials instead of addressing his issue were busy taking 'selfies.

Tweeting on Sunday with photos of the receipts, said: "I am terribly saddened/ashamed that our Acknowledgment/Receipts Dt 24/2/'19 shown below did not have our voting names in booth... I didn't know where to look as Officials & Police were busy taking 'selfies'- Never felt so humiliated... all for the sake of Indian Democracy!"

The ex-is not the only one who had to return without casting his vote. Many people in the national capital faced a similar experience.

Ashok Verma, a resident of Dwarka, complained that the entire family's name was missing from the voters list.

"In 2014, I had exercised my franchise and it is shocking that this time, my entire family's name is missing," he said.

Another senior citizen also found his name missing from the list.

A said when the process of verification of voters begins, sometimes after successive visits if the voter is not present and the house is locked, they presume that the occupant has shifted to some other place.
