Patna: Alleging that more than 1.50 crore
dalits, extremely backward and muslim voters had been deprived
of their fundamental right of voting, LJP on Wednesday said it would
approach the Election Commission of India and Supreme Court
against it.

"More than 1.5 crore dalits, extremely backward and muslim
voters have been deprived of their fundamental right of voting
following deletion of their names from the voter`s lists``,
LJP General Secretary Satyanand Sharma told reporters here.

Sharma accused Chief Electoral Officer of being hand in
glove with the state government on the issue.

He said his party would approach the commission and the
apex court to expose the conspiracy to influence the results
in favour of ruling NDA in Bihar.

Sharma further alleged that no process was followed by
the state election office here before deletion of their names
from the voter`s lists.
