New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki Chairman R.C. Bhargava joined the list of people who found their names deleted from the voter list on Thursday and said he will seek clarification regarding the undue deletion from the authorities concerned.
He is a resident of Noida and casts his vote in the Noida Sector-15A Club polling station.
“When I went there I found that my name was there in the list but across it somebody had stamped deleted. Somebody decided to delete me from the list,” Bhargava said, adding that he did not know the reason of the removal.
He further told IANS: “I can now write to the Noida’s Chief Electoral Officer or the UP Chief Electoral Officer to find out who they are (who deleted my name) and why did they do it… I have not written so far, but I will write.”
The Maruti Chairman noted that he had voted earlier and cast his vote in that very polling station in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2017.
If late, many instances of names missing from the electoral roll have come up in the country and the first phase of the 2019 general elections was no different.
Shobana Kamineni, daughter of Apollo Hospitals Founder Prathap Reddy, said her name was deleted from the list and Biocon Chairperson Kiran Mazumdar Shaw tweeted that her mother’s name was deleted on a “flimsy excuse that there was a report that she no longer lives at her address”.
