Missing names irk voters at Visakhapatnam Elections

Voters turning up to exercise their franchise with their photo identity cards but not finding their names in the electoral list proved a common phenomenon in Visakhapatnam Parliamentary Constituency which went to the polls on Tuesday. Anxious and angry voters were seen exchanging words with the polling staff demanding to know as to why their names had been struck off the electoral list.

Police disperse supporters of rival parties

Police resorted to a mild lathicharge to disperse supporters of Congress, TDP and BJP near Relli Veedhi in Visakhapatnam 1 Assembly segment on Tuesday evening as polling for the Lok Sabha and Assembly came to an end. Minor incidents were reported from all over the city as polling moved into the last hour with both sides charging the other with resorting to malpractices. Supporters of the Congress and the TDP-BJP were seen standing in groups outside the polling stations.

Trouble was brewing since 3.30pm near VMC Elementary school building at Relli Veedhi housing polling station Numbers 75 and 76. The police led by the Inspector Vijay Kumar dispersed the supporters and also those of the Congress who had gathered there. Meanwhile, the BJP candidate K.Haribabu went inside the polling booths after complaints that voters were being allowed to cast their votes without showing the identity cards. As he entered the building, the Congress supports who had gathered outside asked that he come out. As the situation was getting out of control, the police chased away the two groups and brought the situation under control.
