Congress deputation met Governor against Shimla MC voter list

The Congress deputation met Governor Urmila Singh and urged her to order an inquiry into the change of boundaries of wards on the eve of election to the Shimla Municipal Corporation without carrying out delimitation.

A deputation of the party, led by general secretary Kuldeep Rathore, comprising Mayor Madhu Sood, district leaders, councillors, former councillors met the Governor at Raj Bhawan and submitted a memorandum expressing concern over the large scale omission of voters in the draft electoral rolls published for the ensuing Municipal Corporation election.

Leaders drew attention to the fact that names of voters were deleted and added in the electoral rolls without following the due process prescribed in the Municipal Corporation Act. Names of several voters had been omitted on the pretext that they were not residing in the corporation, while names of some other residents were not being included.
