Delhi Congress president Anil Chaudhary claimed that he found his name missing from the voters’ list when he arrived at the polling booth to cast his vote for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections on Sunday.
“My name is neither in the voter list nor in the deleted list. My wife has voted. Officials are checking it,” the Delhi Congress president who arrived at a polling booth in Dallupura to cast his vote, said to ANI news agency.
The elections are seeing a tight contest between the BJP, which currently holds the power of the civic bodies in Delhi, and the AAP, apart from the Congress.
The election to the 250 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) kicked off at 8 am on Sunday. Voting will continue till 5.30 pm.
This will be first election after the MCD was reunified earlier this year. Earlier, the corporation was divided into three – South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), North Delhi Municipal Corporation (North MCD) and East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC).
Votes will be counted on December 7 and the results will be announced on the same day.
