Jagan admits that YSRCP filed form-7 applications
Amidst the data theft and bogus form-7 applications controversies, YSR Congress President Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy admitted that his party leaders have filed form-7 applications to make sure that bogus voters are deleted from the voters' list.
Speaking at a public meeting in Nellore, the YSRCP Chief accused that Telugu Desam Party had registered several bogus voters in the past few months and which left their party leaders with no other option but to file form-7 applications across the state.
Though the Election Commission has made it clear that the applicant for the deletion of votes has come down this year, it is abuzz that the EC received about 8 lakh form-7 applications in Andhra Pradesh and 45 cases booked in 9 districts so far on the same. However, the Chief Election Officer has warned people who are misusing the form-7 to omit the appropriate voters also. ”We will verify all the complaints received and come up with a final list, post verification,” announced the EC.
However, the political circles in the state are still puzzled with Jagan who surprising came out confronting the ‘mistake’ done by his party. Say it a political strategy or a mishap, Jagan’s statement regarding the misusing of form-7 is sending negative vibes to the ardent supporters of the Jagan and his party. Didn’t the party head feel they are deleting the legitimate voters also?
We were also aware of the fact that Jagan himself approached the Election Commission for India and the Andhra Pradesh in February requesting them to look into the list of 58 lakh bogus and duplicate voters. "We complained to the central election commission, state election commission and submitted Form-7 to delete bogus voters. This they are calling a crime," he accused. Will the party cadre and fans support his accusations?
