Hyderabad: Two days after district electoral officer D Ronald Rose informed that 5.41 lakh votes have been deleted from the electoral rolls under GHMC’s limits, BJP candidate for Hyderabad Lok Sabha segment K Madhavi Latha expressed surprise and raised questions on the functioning of the GHMC.

“Was the GHMC sleeping when 5.5 lakh bogus votes were coming? Were they eating biryani? Now they are saying it has been removed. If it could have been removed so easily, why wasn’t it done till now? We will see if they have really removed it…We have the information of every vote. We will go to the office and check if it has been removed…” she told media on Friday, April 19.
