Allegation arises over irregularity in postal votes in Parassala
Thiruvananthapuram: Complaint arose that huge irregularities took place in the postal ballots in Parassala constituency. The allegation arose in Perumkadavila and Kunnathukal panchayats.
The malpractice came to light after the polling officer clarified that the vote of the people who came to exercise franchise in the polling booth were already cast through postal ballot.
The votes of Perumkadavila native Velayudhan Pillai and Kunnathukal native Sajan were recorded as postal ballot. Following this, the voters returned without casting their votes.
BJP alleged that huge irregularities took place in majority of the panchayats in the name of voters who did not turn up to cast vote. They also demanded a detailed probe into the incident.
