Shocking: 30 lakh fake voters in Telangana

Congress MLA Marri Sreedhar Reddy made some shocking allegations about the elections in Telangana. He stated that there were around 30 lakh fake voter identities as of now.

Speaking to the media after a meeting with the Election Comission officials, he said, “We had a long discussion with the Election Comission about the various aspects of the upcoming elections and we came to know that about 12% of the voter identities are fake in the state, that is about 30 lakhs and its not a small thing. We have requested them to look into this and solve the issue ahead of the elections.”

The Congress MLA accused the TRS of holding pre polls to conceal all these flaws in the elections. But the Election Comission announced purification of voter identities from 4th of January 2019 with the help of CDAC (Centre for Development of Advance Computing).
