Thiruvananthapuram: BJP state general secretary George Kurian filed a complaint with the Election Commission over releasing the details of the voters on a foreign website with the help of a foreign company. He said that it affects national security and violates the right to privacy of the citizens.

The voters’ list contains basic information of the voters and is kept by the EC. After complaints arose regarding rigged votes, the Congress party created a website with the help of a data developer company based in Singapore.

Details of the rigged voters were released on the website. Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala handed over the information to the website company from the EC database. This amounts to leaking of data of Indian citizens, George Kurian pointed out.

The KPCC and the opposition leader used the information of the voters without seeking permission of the EC. Protocol to be followed while handing over confidential information was violated. Every voter has the right to keep their information confidential. KPCC and Chennithala violated the right to privacy, the complaint pointed out.

The Singapore-based company has the personal details of the voters. This is a threat to national security. The EC also cannot claim innocence in this act. The website should be frozen immediately and police should take action against Chennithala and KPCC, George Kurian demanded in the complaint.
