CEO showing partiality,no bogus voting;says Kodiyeri

CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has criticized Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) for being in favour of UDF government and not willing to hear the side of accused in the bogus voting issue.

Speaking at a press conference at kannur kodiyeri ssaid,no bogus voting has happened in Pilathara.”It was an assisted vote based on ‘Forum M 18’.It wasn’t possible to carry an ill person to the booth.That’s why the voter didn’t reach the polling booth.Otherwise,election commission should have arranged facilitiess for them,”he said.

“On what basis can the CEO Teeka Ram Meena can confirm the allegation against the accused?The CEO can’t demand the alleged panchayat member to step aside from his post.Only the state election commission has the right to cancel the appointment of a member of a local governing body.The decision of the CEO is illegal,”alleged Kodiyeri.

Investigation shouldn’t be based on a particular region.Allegations of bogus voting in Kannur by Muslim League (UML) activits were also reported and this should be also investigated.LDF had filed complaints against 156 booths in Kasaragod constituency,said Kodiyeri.
