Due to apparent goof-ups in the electoral rolls for BMC polls, Congress MP Priya Dutt's photo in the list is not hers while the photo of her actor brother Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanayata shown in the list is someone else's.

Even additional chief secretary of the state election commission Chand Goel, is not spared from the goof-ups in the rolls, as his sex is shown as female. Goel's surname is also wrongly spelt as 'Goyal'.

Dutt, Member of Parliament from north central Mumbai cannot recognise her face on the electoral list because her photo has been switched with one Ratna Gupta's. She also won't be able to search her name in the English list available online as her surname is spelled as 'Datt'.

In the rolls, Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanayata (Dilnasheel Dutt) has the picture of one Shivani Gupta.

The state electoral list for the BMC polls, scheduled on February 16, was released recently.

State election commissioner Neela Satyanarayan said, "We kept our offices open for appropriate changes to be done, before the voters list was finally released on January 5."
