HYDERABAD: The TPCC has took up the issue of alleged deletion of the names of voters, particularly those of Seemandhra people in the Greater Hyderabad limits, with the chief election commissioner on Monday.

A delegation led by TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy met CEC Nasim Ziadi in Delhi and submitted a representation. Later, Reddy told reporters that authorities deleted names of four lakh Seemandhras living in Greater Hyderabad. “There is a conspiracy to delete 25 lakh more,” he alleged.

Reddy said they didn’t mind deletion of bogus voters. “However, the names are being struck off the rolls on the pretext of door lock and other reasons. The details of the votes deleted should be made public,” he demanded.

Commercial taxes minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav denied the charge. The Congress was playing cheap politics over the revision of electoral rolls, he said.Refuting the allegation that 1.30 lakh votes were deleted in Sanathnagar Assembly segment, he asked, “Has any voter complained against the deletion of name from the rolls in Sanathnagar  segment?” Moreover, around 7,000 new voters were enrolled after the general election, he claimed.
