Vijay Bakaya expresses concern over missing of names from voter lists
Asks CEO, Relief Commissioner (M) to avoid such situation in remaining phases

Jammu, May 14 (Scoop News)-On completion of the third phase of election to the Parliamentary seat of Kashmir, Apni Party’s General Secretary, Vijay Bakaya has congratulated the Kashmiri Pandit displaced voters for exercising their franchise in larger numbers than ever during their 34 years of forced displacement from Kashmir.

In a press release, Bakaya said there were long lines of voters to be seen at polling stations throughout the day including aged and first-time voters, and at the end of the day nearly 7000 votes had been polled.

He said this number constituted nearly 39% of the total migrant votes mapped in the constituency.

He however expressed dismay that at least more than a thousand voters were turned back from the booths because their names were missing from the voter lists.

“These voters were not allowed to cast votes even though they showed the voter cards. Hence, this created a chaotic situation at many booths,” he stated, expressing his deep concern.

He further added that the authorities concerned at the highest level were informed but redressal came after polling time was over and there were very few voters left waiting.

He said that there has been bungling in preparation of voter lists which has shocked the KPs. While being facilitated by removal of the need to fill up M- forms, the KP voters were denied the right of franchise.

He urged “The CEO and the Relief Commissioner (Migrant) to ensure that such a situation does not arise in the remaining two phases.”
He finally urged the voters to come out in more numbers to the polling booths on 20th and 25th May to express their determination to seek political empowerment and become active stakeholders in the political process of the Union Territory of J&K.
