DNMUM248757 | 7/3/2012 | Author : Sudhanshu Athalye | WC :334

Politicos raised concerns about errors in the list, the civic body has since rectified it

The election department of the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) published the final voter lists with all necessary additions and corrections on Monday. This was after political parties leaders and activists raised concerns about the wrong details of voters.
The twin city of Mira Bhayandar will have its civic election in August this year and all the political parties have already started their election campaign in full swing. As a part of civic election, about 42,000 new voters were enrolled this year. The State Election Commission (SEC) had asked for suggestions and objections for new enrollment after publishing interim supplementary voters list on June 16.
Interestingly, as many as 328 suggestions and objections were registered against supplementary voters list. Even mayor Tulshidas Mhatre objected the incomplete names and addresses of new voters.
In the additional supplementary voter list, which was released earlier, most of the voters were added in different wards. Many names were incomplete and in some, the age and gender was wrongly mentioned. Many buildings were added to wrong wards. Shockingly out of 42,000 new voters, more than 40,000 voters did not show the full names and proper age.
In response to election commission's appeal, mayor Tulshidas Mhatre filed objections. A special hearing for the suggestions and objections was conducted before Neela Sathyanarayan, chief of the State Election Commission last week.
After completing the hearing, she had asked the election department of the MBMC to make necessary additions and rectifications at the earliest. Accordingly, the civic authorities did rectifications and additions, publishing the final voter list on Monday.
Expressing regret about the final voter lists, Narendra Mehta, former mayor and district president of BJP said that there are many major mistakes in final lists. This is injustice to candidates and voters.
Anil Sawant, Congress corporator said that it seems that suggestions and corrections was a farce. The bifurcation is done in a wrong manner and civic administration is responsible for this mess. They now expect many surprising results in this election.
