In a shocking revelation during the Lok Sabha elections in Pune, several voters were unable to cast their ballots due to a bizarre error – their names were listed as deceased in the voter registry. At Voting Center No. 188 in Bhawani Peth, numerous citizens, armed with valid identification, were denied their fundamental right to vote.


Activists from the Youth Kranti Dal and Bharat Jodo Abhiyan, along with Congress booth workers, brought this egregious oversight to light. They discovered that at Polling Station No. 188, Mahatma Phule Peth, School No. 95, Room No. 2, the records showed five individuals as deceased, despite their presence to vote.


The affected individuals, namely Nazir Karim Sheikh (Voter No. 896), Raja Mohan Gawande (758), Hasan Shekhlal Sheikh (776), Vijay Tukaram Kondhare (111), and Fakir Ahmad Sheikh (304), were dismayed to find themselves disenfranchised due to this administrative error.


Sandeep Barve, a fervent advocate from the Youth Kranti Dal, took immediate action upon discovering this discrepancy. He relentlessly pursued the Election Commission, demanding rectification of the error to ensure every eligible voter could exercise their democratic right.


Barve’s efforts extended beyond official channels; he leveraged social media to garner attention from the government, circulating a video highlighting the injustice faced by voters in Bhawani Peth.
