Pune, 13th May 2024: Hundreds of citizens were left disenfranchised at the Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj School polling station in Mundhwa, Shirur constituency, as their names mysteriously vanished from the voter rolls. Approximately 700 to 800 individuals found themselves excluded, sparking frustration and anger among the affected voters.

Smita Hashekhar Gurav, a 48-year-old resident, expressed her dismay, revealing that “despite being eligible to vote for three decades, she has never had the opportunity due to various obstacles. However, this time, even with the intention to exercise her democratic right, she was thwarted by the omission of her name from the list.”

The aggrieved citizens confronted the supervisor, Rishikesh Gaikwad, demanding answers and resolution. However, Gaikwad, citing limitations, redirected their concerns to higher authorities, leaving the voters with a sense of helplessness and injustice. The incident has raised serious questions about the integrity of the electoral process and the need for immediate corrective measures to ensure that every eligible citizen can participate in the democratic process without hindrance.
