Re-poll demanded in Majiwada after only five votes were polled at a booth
Thane: A demand was made here on Sunday to order re-poll at a booth in Majiwada where only five people were allowed to vote and the others were turned back stating that their names are not on electoral rolls, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) sources said.
Talking to reporters here today Ashok Pohekar, the election agent of NCP nominee and present MP Sanjeev Naik said that he had made such a demand to the Chief Election Commissioner and the State Election Officer.
Copies of a memorandum submitted to them said that during the last two polls, there were two polling booths, 338-A and 341-A at Chandresh Lodha school.
However, recently both the booths were combined to create a simgle booth called number 338-A and it was shifted to the Gramin Sikhshan Sanstha at Majiwada, he said.
He said that he had brought this to the notice of poll officials who refused to reconsider the location.
As against the total of around 1,200 voter to 1,300 voters, only five voters were allowed to vote, he said.
He alleged that this was done deliberately and needed to be probed, adding that a re-poll needs to be ordered in the booth.
