Patkar alleges 2.46 lakh voters missing in Mumbai NE constituency
24 April 2014
Medha Padkar, the Aam Aadmi candidate from Mumbai North East constituency, today alleged that 2.46 lakh voter names have been deleted from her constituency.
Patkar said while the genuineness or otherwise of the omissions are not known, and she plans to approach the Election Commission over the issue.
The social activist-turned-political-aspirant also claimed that her rivals – both Congress and the BJP - were using money power to swing votes.
"In Mulund and Bhandup, they switched off the lights for 15-20 minutes in phases and distributed money on Wednesday. In the slum-dominated Shivajinagar area, they were distributing money openly," she said adding that a complaint has been registered with the EC.
She also claimed that she has numbers of the vehicles used for distributing money.
"They are indulging in malpractices like distributing voter slips to people with party insignia and candidate picture printed on it," Patkar added.
