EC responsible for rigged votes: CPI

Thiruvananthapuram: CPI mouthpiece Janayugam stated in its editorial that the Election Commission (EC) is responsible for the rigged votes.

If there are more than one ID card in the name of a single person, then the Election Commission is responsible for that. Even the state government cannot intervene in this. The EC officials should give importance to organise the election without errors, it was pointed out in the editorial.

This is not the first time rigged votes are identified. The Chief Electoral Officer had said that inspection will continue in all constituencies. Adding names in the voters list is a long process and many steps are involved in this. Blaming political parties for the errors is absurd, the editorial article stated.
