HYDERABAD: Ace shuttler Jwala Gutta was disappointed Friday, as she could not vote in the Telangana Assembly polls after her name was allegedly missing in the voters' list.
She sought to know why her name was deleted as she has been residing at the same residence for the past 12 years.
Jwala Gutta: I checked my name online 2-3 weeks ago, my mother's&my names were there, my father's&my sister's were missing. Today we went to cast vote but my name was also missing. I don't understand how's my name missing. I've been living here for 12 yrs. #TelanganaElections pic.twitter.com/mh1cRnTWu1— ANI (@ANI) December 7, 2018
If the names are deleted, the concerned persons should definitely be informed, she said. Gutta said her mother was, however, able to vote. Her father Kranti Gutta told PTI that Jwala's name was found in the voters' list around one month ago.
He claimed his attempt to enrol online as a voter was not successful. The concerned polling station is in Banjara Hills in the city, he said. Jwala Gutta has won several medals, including in the Commonweath Games
