Earlier there were complaints of large-scale irregularities in the preparation of voters' list for the Mangawan constituency in Rewa district. The Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker, Shrinivas Tiwari, was declared elected from this constituency in the last election by a slender margin -- that too after a recount.
Following the orders of the Election Commission, hundreds of Government officers from Jabalpur and Mandla districts had recently conducted a comprehensive survey to verify the names of registered voters in the revised electoral rolls of the Mangawan constituency.
It has now been revealed that even in the revised electoral rolls, almost 20,000 of the 22,000 disputed entries could not be verified.
At a time when the credibility of the entire election process in the Rewa district was at the rock bottom, the Election Commission has now taken the decision to post officers from other parts of the State on election duty in the division.
Obviously this would call for the replacement of all the officers presently handling the election duty in the Rewa division.
