Deletion of Nanda from voters list wrong: EC
New Delhi, Nov 09: The Election Commission on Saturday said the deletion of arms dealer and BJP rebels' candidate Suresh Nanda from the voters list was wrong and cleared the way for taking cognizance of withdrawal of his nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha elections.
Sources said following complaints from Nanda, a secretary of the EC was sent to Ghaziabad to make an inquiry which found that his entry in the electoral roll was "correct" and its subsequent cancellation was "wrong."
The findings of the inquiry was being passed on to the returning officer to go ahead with the scrutiny of papers, the sources said. The scrutiny was stayed till the EC conveyed its views.
Earlier, Vidhan Sabha Secretary R P Pandey told reporters in Lucknow that the cognizance of the withdrawal of papers would be taken only after the Election Commission completed its inquiry.
Pandey said the withdrawal by Nanda would be relevant only after the EC took a decision on his complaint.
