Congress terms voter's list as " flawed"
Kolkata, Feb 23 (UNI) West Bengal Congress general secretary Manas Bhuniya today cast aspersion on the recently published electoral rolls, alleging that the list consisted at least 3.7 million fake voters.
Talking to newspersons here, Mr Bhuniya said though the Election Commission has deleted 1.3 million names from the electoral rolls, ''we think this deletion is not sufficient and the list comprises more and more fake names.'' He demanded an intensive exercise towards releasing a flawless voters list, and intimated that the party would dash off a letter to Chief Election Commissioner B B Tandon tomorrow, alleging that till today no political party in the state received the list.
Mr Bhunia vouched for a fair electoral rolls as according to him the just published list was ''incorrect.'' He also charged the Left Front in the state with taking credit of the National Employment Guarantee Act, 2005, which would provide employment to the rural people in 200 districts in India and ten district in West Bengal.
The Front had prepared some leaflets, booklets, audio cassettes and video CDs where they had categorically said this scheme had been taken up by the state government, he alleged.
''We are sending a letter to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Defence Minister and WBPCC president Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh besides B B Tandon for taking necessary steps against the state government in this regard,'' Mr Bhuniya said.
