R.C. Bhargava's name deleted from voter list

IANS  |  New Delhi 

R.C. joined the list of people who found their names deleted from the voter list on Thursday and said he will seek clarification regarding the undue from the authorities concerned.

He is a resident of Noida and casts his vote in the polling station.

"When I went there I found that my name was there in the list but across it somebody had stamped deleted. Somebody decided to delete me from the list," said, adding that he did not know the reason of the removal.

He further told IANS: "I can now write to the Noida's or the UP to find out who they are (who deleted my name) and why did they do it… I have not written so far, but I will write."

The noted that he had voted earlier and cast his vote in that very polling station in the elections in 2017.

If late, many instances of names missing from the electoral roll have come up in the country and the first phase of the 2019 was no different.

Shobana Kamineni, daughter of Founder Prathap Reddy, said her name was deleted from the list and Chairperson tweeted that her mother's name was deleted on a "flimsy excuse that there was a report that she no longer lives at her address".
