Last Updated: Monday, October 25, 2010 - 21:27

Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition Leader Oommen
Chandy today alleged that the state government had failed to
provide security to voters at five booths in Kannur district
where repolling was held today.

In a statement here, he charged that police force was
sent to the booths with their hands chained to enable CPI-M
workers to indulge in `hooliganism.`

CPI-M workers had unleashed violence against voters right
from last night, he said. "It is a disgraceful for Home
Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan that he could not give
protection to 4,500 voters in the five booths. It is
democracy that has failed here," he said.
