Party leaders Arun Singh, Anil Baluni, Om Pathak and Ponta Venkat Raman were also part of the delegation. Mr Naqvi said names of several fake voters included in list, adding that 700-800 voters have same addresses.'Names of Rohingyas have been included in list, they shouldn't be allowed to cast votes,' he said and demanded that the Election Commission remove the loopholes before election and take action against officers involved. Congress, TRS & AIMIM together deleted large number of voters in Telangana from voter list on grounds of their community and genuine voters from a particular community and supporting a specific party have been deleted under planned conspiracy, reports said.
