Large number of bogus voters in Panchkula, claims MLA
PANCHKULA : Local MLA Gian Chand Gupta on Wednesday alleged there was a large number of bogus voters in the electoral rolls of Panchkula assembly constituency.

Addressing a press conference, he said he wrote to the state election commission (EC) and the district administration on December 12, 2018, saying that bogus/fake votes were being added to the voter list in collusion with local officials in Gandhi Colony, Rajiv Colony, Indira Colony, Kharak Mangoli, Bhainsa Tibba, Buddanpur village and Abhaypur of Panchkula constituency.

In another letter written on March 19, Gupta alleged that 162 voters from booth number 107, and 145 voters from booth number 108, in Sector 15, Panchkula, were found to be fake by local booth agents. Gupta demanded that the state EC conduct a doorto-door survey for verification.

“In our survey, 307 fake voters were found in just two polling booths, and if all booths are checked, this number will be very large. Even after repeated requests, the district election office has failed to check and delete fake voters,” said Gupta.

EC CODE BEING FOLLOWED, SAYS DC Balkar Singh, Panchkula DC and district election officer, said, “We are following the procedure laid down by the EC. If there are any complaints, we verify these are per EC code. Names from the voter list cannot be removed 10 days after declaration of polls.”

Booth level officers (BLOs) are going from door to door, compiling the ASD (absent, shifted, dead) list, which will be available at all polling stations, Singh said
