CIC calls for inquiry into voter IDs given on MP, MLA reference

Taking a serious view of 58,000 cases of voter cards with wrong photos admitted by Delhi Government, the Central Information Commission on Tuesday called for an in-depth inquiry into cards issued on residential proof with MP or MLA recommendation to curb bogus voting.

Hearing a case in this regard, Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said in the context of admission about mistakes and huge bogus votes by Chief Electoral Officer of national capital in a
PIL before Delhi High Court, the problem appears to be more serious and complex.

“It is shocking to know that there are 58,000 cases of wrong photo image, including that of a film star on a common man’s voter card, an in-depth inquiry into residential addresses with MP recommendation criterion might reveal more bogus votes,” he said.
