Road roko by voters ...

The road roko staged by voters of Perichipalayam and heated arguments at various booths in Tirupur Lok Sabha constituency on Wednesday after poll officials refused to accept family card as a photo document for casting votes marred election in Tirupur.

Across the constituency, thousands of electors who had come to the polling stations considering family cards as a ‘valid document’ were returned by election officials stating that the ration card was not listed among the 13 substitute documents for electors’ photo identity card (EPIC).

Following this, a group of voters staged a road blockade at Perichipalayam citing reports that appeared in some vernacular dailies over the last few days that ration cards were valid photo documents. However, poll proceedings were not disrupted.
