Panaji: With two more days to go for Goa
assembly polls, the BJP has requested the Election Commission
to ask persons with unknown origin and those not linked to
their constituency, to vacate the area in order to prevent
bogus voting in the state.

Party leaders fear that bogus voters are being hoarded in
various constituencies by political rivals, and they would be
used on March 3.
"All the persons of unknown origin who are not in any
way connected or linked to the constituency should be asked to
vacate the areas," BJP`s Goa spokesman Dr Wilfred Mesquita
said in a letter with the EC.

BJP has also claimed that the flying squads in the
constituencies like Sanguem, Valpoi, Poriem and Cuncolim are
non effective because of the connivance of local police with
the ministers, contesting elections.
Mesquita has demanded that CRPF should be deployed for
ministers with Z category to curb such things.

"Even the current batch of policemen with flying
squads should be replaced by a new one," he said.

Considering the volatile situation in a few
constituencies, the party has demanded that seats including
St Andre, Taleigao, Shiroda, Sanguem, Valpoi and Cuncolim
should be declared sensitive.
