Panaji: The Congress party on Tuesday protested and submitted a memorandum accusing that ‘fake’ unidentified people have raised objection for deleting valid voters from the electoral list in Mormugao.
Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC)  Vice President Sankalp Amonkar along with other office bearers Varad Mardolkar,  Janardhan Bhandari and others along with around 100 people on Tuesday evening arrived to Dy Collector Sachin Desai to raise the objections over the attempt to delete the names of valid voters using fake protestors.
Amonkar speaking to media alleged that there were 29 BLOs out of which 21 were employed with the electricity department and working at the behest of the Urban Development minister Milind Naik. Amonkar after submitting a memorandum to the Dy Collector also said that deletion on a large scale were only happening in Mormugao constituency especially in Baina area  through fake objectors where anybody can object anybody .
Amonkar pointed out that while objectors names were blank, names were also being added at random and in a house having four members, there were additional many names added in the same house.
Amonkar said that the process to delete voters in mormugao Taluka was a fraud because while one person who had died ten months ago had raised objection to delete the names of people who were actually living in the area.
Amonkar also said that he had personally called many objectors and realized that some people were from places like Nashik in Maharashtra and some had claimed that they had never objected though their names and mobile number were registered in the online system as an objectors.
Amonkar said that BLOs were working under the pressure of Urban Development Minister Milind Naik  who wanted to get the names deleted from  the electoral roll of Mormugao constituency . Amonkar said that BLOs did not carry out any survey but worked hands in gloves with the councilors to get the names of many Congress supporters deleted.
Amonkar alleged that names of Christian, Muslim and Non Goan voters were attempted to be deleted at the behest of BJP councillors.
