During last 2-3 days many calls have been received seeking redressal of poll booth mismatches. In normal course any such mismatch may be directly referred to Returning Officer (RO) through one specific form stipulated to take care of this issue. The form is already available on the web site www.icmai.in.
However the number of complaints are very high and abnormal. This requires urgent and immediate action. As a former President it is my duty to suggest and recommend corrective measures to the concerned authorities.
In this connection i requested the President to take remedial measures. My concern has got aggrevated after knowing the scale of mis-match. In all fairness, if apprehensions are so high then MCA needs to intervene so as the elections are conducted in independent and fair manner.
I am confident that MCA is aware about this issue and will initiate appropriate action. In the meanwhile i request members to download the form and send to RO for the change in polling booth.
I also hope that RO takes care of such issues beforehand and avoid such controversies in future.
