Voters’ data row: Congress welcomes EC decision, demands FIR against Bommai


BENGALURU: Congress Karnataka in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala on Saturday welcomed the swift motion by the Election Fee in ordering evaluation of deletions and additions in voters’ listing and suspension of two extra district election officers.

Alleging that the “kingpin” of “voter fraud” is none much less then in-charge Minister cum Chief Minister, Basavaraj Bommai and Chief Commissioner of BBMP, who’s Electoral Officer, Surjewala demanded that an FIR should be lodged by the EC in opposition to them for a good enquiry.

“Chilume Trust and Chilume Enterprises were authorized by the Bommai government to collect voters’ data for all 28 assemblies of Bengaluru. They have illegally collected voters’ personal data and uploaded it on a private app,” he charged.

“Any fair inquiry into vote fraud by the EC has to cover all 28 assemblies. Chilume hired nearly 10,000 employees and subcontracted the work of data collection to multiple agencies, which was illegally stolen,” he stated.

“Crores were pumped in. Where did the money come from? Who funded this illegal operation?” Surjewala stated.

The EC has to inquire in regards to the “brazen hijacking of democracy”, he maintained.

“New revelations reveal that Chilume’s fat cat Ravikumar had also received payments from the union government in sundry accounts of innocent villagers and withdrawn the same indicating a huge money laundering racket and duping the exchequer,” he stated.

The EC ought to examine and direct ED and Revenue Tax division to research the “scam”.

“All the above is imperative for retaining the very sanctity of democracy, for the Bommai Government’s ‘sinister’ plan to corrupt the electoral process has been caught red handed,” he stated.

“Onus is on the EC and each one of us to defend democracy and every Kannadiga’s right to vote,” he stated.
