After local bodies minister Anil Joshi and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate from Bathinda constituency Jassi Jasraj alias Jasraj Singh Longia landed in controversy for dual votes, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) candidate Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon has also been found to be holding dual votes at Ludhiana west and Dakha assembly constituencies by different names.
CPM candidate from Ludhiana Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon has enrolled as a voter from Pamali village of Dakha assembly constituency, as Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon, son of Jora Singh Sekhon, voter card number LCL1314269. Pamali is his ancestral village.
He is also enrolled from Har nam Nagar in Ludhiana west constituency, where CPM’s office is located, as Sukhwinder Singh, son of Jora Singh, voter card number GKC1759737.
When contacted, Sekhon rued conspiracy, adding, “Why will I enrol as a voter twice, if I have a vote from my village Pamali. I am not aware about this.”
“It is a conspiracy in which the block-level officers (BLOs) are involved to damage my image. I will file a complaint with the district electoral officer in this context,” he added.
Deputy commissioner-cumdistrict electoral officer Rajat Agarwal said he would take action if someone complained.
