Bhopal, May 12 (UNI) Alleging widespread irregularities in electoral rolls in Madhya Pradesh, main opposition Congress today urged Chief Electoral Officer(CEO) J S Mathur to constitute a committee to probe the matter and to take stern action against the guilty officers.

A delegation led by MPCC President Suresh Pachouri handed over a memorandum to CEO stating that the electoral rolls, which were made in view of next Assembly election, had enormous faults.

Flaunting the data regarding the deleted names of thousands of voters from the rolls in Hoshangabad, Narsinghpur, Ujjain and Nagda, Mr Pachouri said without any basis government officials had deleted many names.

Mr Pachouri requested the CEO to hold special camps at every polling booth to correct the rolls and to issue the voter identity cards besides addition of deleted names. He also demanded two months time for this endeavour.

''The credibility of voter identity cards have been vanished due to large scale errors in name, age and address,'' he said.

Leader of opposition in state Assembly Jamuna Devi was also in the delegation.
