26 lakh Cases Of Duplicacy In Madhya Pradesh Electoral Rolls To Benefit BJP?
"A tech-political start-up on Sunday claimed that there are anomalies in the voters’ list,“ a report said.
The Madhya Pradesh electoral rolls issue is not going to be over anytime soon. A staggering 26 lakh cases of duplicacy of voters still remain in the state’s voters’ list, claims a start-up.
According to a Dainik Bhaskar report, tech-political start-up The Politics.in CEO Vikas Jain on Sunday said that there are anomalies in the voters’ list. “The findings suggest that 26 lakh irregularities are still there in the total 230 Vidhan Sabha constituencies of the state.”
Jain asserted that the duplicacy will certainly benefit the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He stated that in 2003, the total voters in the state were 3.79 crore. In 2008, the voters dropped by 16 lakh and the total voters were 3.62 crore. But in 2013, the voters increased to 4.66 crore. In 2018, the number had increased to 5.17 crore.
Jain highlighted that the issue is not over yet as the chief electoral officer Salina Singh accepts that many irregularities are still in the electoral rolls.
According to a report published in The Free Press Journal, Jain said, “The response of the ECI against the Congress complaint was prepared well in advance, the Congress party should file a case against the ECI in the court.”
