Mumbai – The electorates in the city suffered a lot in the BMC election as lakhs of them remained devoid of using their right to vote due to their missing names in electoral rolls. Taking this seriously, the standing committee of the BMC has demanded an investigation into this scam-like goof up.
When the proposal to pass election expenditure came before the standing committee, its member Dilip Patel expressed anger over the missing names of 11 lakh voters across the city. Patel said that names of 4000 to 4500 voters were missing in every ward if the number of 11 lakh is held true. He also claimed that the tally of the BJP could be 130 if these names were included in the list. He demanded a probe into this goof up.
Meanwhile, Trushna Vishwasrao, leader of the house, also expressed anguish over the missing names of voters and demanded probe into the allegations of a scandal. Finally, standing committee chairman Yashodhar Phanse directed the administration to conduct an inquiry into these allegations.
