Election authority, GHMC illegally shift 10k voters of Azampura to Chawni: MBT

Hyderabad: Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) has alleged discrepancies in the final voter list issued by Azampura Municipal Division.

The party has written to Telangana State Election Commission stating that more than 10,000 voters of Chanchalguda, which are part of the ward 28-Azampura Municipal Division, have been shown as voters of ward 29-Chawni Municipal Division.

The party alleged that this had been done intentionally to help the AIMIM candidate.

"Such fraud was also committed during 2015 GHMC elections at the insistence of AIMIM by GHMC. MBT had approached the High Court which came to our rescue by restoring the original voter list of Azampura Division. This time the same mischief has been committed. Our legal team has decided to approach HC again," said Amjed Ullah Khan, leader of MBT.

He also said that 70 percent of the 16-3 block of Chanchalguda falls under Azampura, while only 30 percent falls under Chawni.

"In view of GHMC elections, I checked the distribution of voters among Azampura and Chawni. I found that many voters of Azampura were shown as voters of Chawni. On November 10, I wrote to B Srinivas, Assistant Election Authority of Malakpet Assembly Constituency and Deputy Commissioner GHMC about the wrong distribution of voters. I was shocked to know that our complaint has not been processed. Nearly 10,000 voters of Azampura are shown as voters of Chawni," said Amjed Ullah Khan.

He alleged that this has been done intentionally by B Srinivas and Deputy commissioner, GHMC to appease the AIMIM.

MBT also said that they will approach the Telangana High Court regarding this issue.
