The Election Commission removed 10 lakh bogus votes in Telangana, with most of them concentrated in Hyderabad and its surrounding constituencies. Kuthbullapur, Serilingampally, and LB Nagar had the highest number of fake votes, with 50,000 found in Kutbullapur constituency.
The Election Commission of India announced that the majority of fake votes were detected in Hyderabad, Rangareddy, Medchal-Malkazgiri, Karimnagar, and Nizamabad Urban. Telangana’s Chief Electoral Officer, Vikas Raj, shared details about this. He explained that there are certain factors to be considered for removal from the electoral list.
When voters transfer from one region to another, they should apply for a transfer in Form 8. Once a voter’s name is added to a new region, their name is deleted from the old region as well. Vikas Raj assured that the Election Commission will follow a proper procedure to eliminate fake votes.
