Non-Locals Being Registered As Voters In Kashmir, Alleges Mehbooba

SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s administration has given verbal orders to its officials to register non-local labourers and defence personnel as voters.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “According to reports, verbal orders were passed at an administrative meeting in Baramulla yesterday by district Tehsildar to enrol non-local labourers, CISF, CRPF, BSF & army personnel as voters. Administration must come clean on this.”

The development came a day after the Chief Electoral Officer Hridesh Kumar held an all-party meeting in Jammu where political parties except the BJP objected to the inclusion of outside voters in the electoral rolls which are being prepared for upcoming Assembly election.
