“The names of many
supporters of YSRCP in Chief Minister’s constituency have been deleted though

to District Collector. We demand that the electoral rolls should be set right
before the closing of nominations,’ Party spokesperson Janak Prasad and the
affected people told reporters here on Wednesday.

While the names of
supporters of YSRCP supporters are being deleted in various villages, those who
are in support of Congress are being registered at more than one place. “Misuse

this trend should be reversed and all eligible voters should have the chance to
vote and contest,” they said.

giving statements which go against the code, they said.

We demand that the
voters’ rolls should be in order and all those names deleted should be included
before July 13 which is the last date for nominations for the first phase.
