YSR Congress Chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has demanded an enquiry into the elimination of as many as forty lakh voters from the final voter list publicised by the ruling TDP government of Andhra Pradesh recently.
He has alleged that the eliminated people were those unsympathetic towards the ruling Telugu Desham Party.
The State Election Commission has assured the YSRC leader that the investigation would be done over the allegation.
The main allegation of the YSRC is that it was at the behest of the TDP that the elimination was performed.
At present, the TDP enjoys a very little advantage in the vote share. In the last assembly election, there was no huge difference between the vote shares of the YSRC and TDP.
The authorities are of the opinion that those eliminated from the list are bogus voters. The ruling also backs that argument.
Anyway, the YSRC leader will today meet the AP governor to convince him the seriousness of the issue. The leader may also meet the Central Election Commission in few days.
The YSRC has asserted that they would not step back from their protest until all eliminated are included in the voters list.
The AP’s prime opposition is expected to organise severe protest across the matter in the state in the coming days.
