Clubbing of polling stations unacceptable as it will lessen the voter participation, says PDP. Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, PDP vice president and former minister Abdul Rehman Veeri on Friday asked Chief Electoral Officer to create new polling stations wherever necessary.
He said that polling station created in the last assembly elections have also been clubbed, demanding that they be allowed at their original place. The clubbing of polling stations will force people to travel a long distance for casting their vote. Moreover, the CEO should ensure more voter participation from remote and rural areas.
