Bangalore, Mar 18 (UNI) Congress in Karnataka may take a legal recourse if Election Commission went ahead with its 'hasty' plans to hold elections in the state without correcting the electoral rolls, KPCC President Mallikarjuna Kharge said today.
Addressing newspersons he charged that over one fifth of the names figuring in the electoral list has been summarily deleted by the State Election Commission and thereby 'denying' opportunity to large sections of the people to participate in the elections.
He said that Congress party had presented several examples in which genuine and eligible voters names had been deleted in the voters list.
"If Election Commission went ahead with holding elections in haste with the defective electoral rolls the party may have to think of a legal recourse," Mr Kharge said.
Stating that Congress in Karantaka was well prepared to face and never tried to get it postponed, he said, "It would be an act of injustice to the people if elections were held on faulty voters list." UNI MV RS GM1832
