Fate of D-voters rests on authority

The Election Commission on Wednesday left the fate of D-voters on the competent authority.

Addressing a press conference, chief election commissioner VS Sampath said that allowing or disallowing D voters to participate in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls is a matter of the competent authority to decide.

He, however, suggested the government to take steps to ensure early disposal of these cases. Notably, several opposition parties at times have been demanding voting rights for the doubtful voters.
