CEO-KA has stated to press, “The cleaning up of the voter list was done by collaborating with the list of deleted voters available from polling stations and political parties and through physical verification process.”
CEO-KA has told me that no political party has collaborated in cleaning the rolls. I believe him on this. Political parties and elected representatives did not respond to my requests to help in cleaning the rolls. I do not believe that CEO-KA has restored illegally deleted voters and that there are lakhs of such voters sitting pretty with their voter ID cards, but without voting rights because their names are not in the electoral rolls. Though we have found this with a sample survey of 420 houses, the judgement of High Court two days ago did not direct the CEO to act based on these evidences.
