Srinagar, Dec 17: Alleging that there was an incident of booth capturing and subsequent bogus voting in a polling station in Bandipora in the recently held DDC elections, People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) President Farooq Abdullah on Thursday wrote a letter to State Election Commissioner K K Sharma and demanded re-polling.
In a letter addressed to SEC KK Sharma, Abdullah demanded repolling in Garoora Bandipora A which went to polls on December 13.
“A very sad state of affairs has been brought to my notice. At a number of places, real voters and supporters of PAGD candidates were disallowed to vote. Apart from wanton capturing of polling booths at Garoora, Bandipora A on 13 Dec, incidents of unwarranted interference were reported from a number of areas which went to polls on 16 Dec. In Chitragam Shopian, voters were forcefully stopped from casting their votes,” writes the NC president.
In the interest of justice and fair play, he requested repoll in these areas.
