Citizens' forum exposes malpractice by Goa poll officers

Goa-based Citizens' Forum today claimed to have exposed malpractices by the state election officers while revising the electoral rolls. Data collected by Pilerne Citizens Forum (PCF) under Right to Information (RTI) shows that election officers in Goa adopt procedures which are different from the guidelines issued by Election Commission of India (ECI). "All the eleven talukas are following guidelines different from ECI to enroll new names or shift the name from one constituency to another," PCF chairman Prakash Bandodkar told reporters here. PCF's allegations are based on the data collected from various offices after one-year-long procedure of getting information under RTI. Bandodkar said ten out of eleven mamlatdars responded to their queries and all were found following procedures which were diverse from the ECI guidelines.
