Kannur: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala raised a few more allegations regarding the irregularities in the voters’ list. He came up with fresh allegations in a press meet held in Kannur.

Many bogus votes were created in the name of a single voter in multiple constituencies and ID cards were distributed. With this, the same voter has votes in many constituencies and they all possess election ID cards issued by the Election Commission.

The voter can cast vote in one constituency in the morning and then remove the indelible ink from finger before voting in another constituency. Also, some others can cast his vote in other constituencies, Chennithala pointed out.

There are a total of 1,09,693 rigged voters. In Irikkur, 537 voters have vote in other constituencies. Apart from this, 711 voters in Azhikode, 527 voters in Cherthala and 287 voters in Kundara also have votes in other constituencies.

All 140 constituencies have such voters who are enlisted in nearby constituencies. The details regarding this issue will be handed over to the Election Commission on Wednesday itself, Chennithala said.
