Names of three-day-old infants and pet animals figure in voters list!


 


KOLAKTTA: In a startling revelation, the PIONEER, a widely respected English daily has come out with a report which says the CPM leaders in Bengal have stuffed the voters list with more than 45 lakh fake names which include three-day-old infants and even pet animals. The observers sent by the Election Commission to take stock of the electoral preparedness in the state were taken aback by the amount of ‘infiltration’ in the electoral rolls of Bengal, says the report filed by Saugar Sengupta. “The amount of infiltration in the electoral rolls of your state is frighteningly colossal. ..bewildering too.. If let alone the, the faking rate could easily beat the climbing the Sensex,” one of the 19 Election Commission observers told the media the other day in Kolakata, the report continues.


 


R.K Kahdelwal, the EC observer for Murshidabad has come across many instances of names of three-day-old infants and livestock figuring in the voters list. Ajizul Haq, a CPM cadre himself told the media that local comrades have been manipulating the electoral rolls for the past three decades. The security forces seized a hi-tech printing press at Bongagon which prints counterfeit electronic photo identity cards and holograms, says the report by Sengupta. Bongagon is known as the Gateway to Bangladesh. Though the CPM distanced itself from those arrested along with the printing press, it finds it difficult to disown Parimal Biswas, a senior party leader in Bongagon who was arrested in connection with the case.


 


More than 29,000 names have been deleted by the Election Commission officials in Coochbehar district alone. K J Rao, an observer who is credited with the fair election in Bihar saw to it that more than 94,000 bogus names were deleted from the list at Nadia.  Rao and his men are trying their best to weed out all fake names from the electoral rolls.  The CPM, which wants to cross the 260 mark in the state assembly in the Assembly elections scheduled for May 2006, has already ensured that the rolls are stuffed with more than 45 lakh bogus names.  The report has given a detailed list of districts in the state where the comrades have succeeded in subverting the democratic process of election. Even after the cleansing process initiated by the Election Commission, the CPM leadership exudes confidence of crossing the 260 mark in the elections. “Even if they weed out 10 lakh names from the list it is not going to make any difference,” one of the top leaders of the party told the Pioneer reporter. The Pioneer report points out that the CPM is fielding 131 new candidates in the 2006 election only after seeing the writing on the wall. According to Sengupta’s  well researched report, the comrades fear a total rout in the election if they fields the same old candidates who managed to make it to the Writers Building only through fraud and manipulation all these thirty years.
