Hyderabad | 4th October 2018
The Supreme Court has directed the Hyderabad High Court to hear on Friday the case by a Telangana Congress leader pertaining to the voters' list, missing voter names and related anomalies.

The Supreme Court heard out the petitioner Congress leader Marri Shashidhar Reddy, who had pleaded that lakhs of names of eligible voters had been deleted from the voters' list, and sought a stay on early elections to allow more time for finalizing the voters' list and also give a chance to eligible new voters to participate in the poll process. The Supreme Court asked him to go to the High Court instead of coming to Delhi. It observed that the High Court had already looked into similar cases, and that this case could be taken up at the state level itself.

The Supreme Court verdict gets significance as it asked the High Court to extend the deadline for setting right the issues of the voters' list in Telangana. The EC had announced earlier that the final draft would be published in the first week of the October.

The High Court will take up the case on Friday, and is likely to give its verdict on the issue of bogus voter names, removal of names and related other issues.
