On the growing demand within the Congress to make its organisation voter rolls public, senior party leader from Punjab, Partap Singh Bajwa, today told his colleagues to simply to go to the party office and collect them if they are in the contest. “It’s 24, Akbar Road, Delhi. They know it too,” he said, without naming anyone, when asked about Manish Tewari, Shashi Tharoor and others’ statements.”The voter rolls for an internal election aren’t public property.
Do you think a chaiwallah (tea-seller) or someone selling golgappe will provide you with the electoral rolls?” Mr Bajwa, Leader of Opposition in the Vidhan Sabha, told Media, “Those who are contesting can get them.””Let me tell you this also… None of these guys who are asking for the rolls are going to contest,” he said, referring to the presidential polls scheduled for next month. Shashi Tharoor is reported to be considering a run for the post, though.
